Title Archaeological investigations at Hob Moor School playing field
Date/Year 2019


A watching brief was undertaken by York Archaeological Trust from May 28th –July 26th on groundworks for the creation of the new area of playing fields, wetland areas and timber walkways at Hob Moor Community Primary Academy, Green Lane, Acomb. The works involved a survey of the extant ridge and furrow earthworks present within the development area, followed by a subsequent watching brief to monitor the ground works and record any archaeological finds or features that were discovered during the course of the works. The earthwork survey identified 15 individual ridges with associated furrows within the development boundary. The works were also subject to intermittent archaeological monitoring on excavation works. This included three investigation test pits for electrical mains and a large scale area strip of the topsoil for the creation of the new playing field. Nothing of archaeological significance was found during the monitoring.
