evaluation. Surfaces and features of Anglo-Scandinavian date were located close to the excavation limit of 1.5m. Deposits belonging to this period demonstrate a wide range of domestic and industrial activity behind the Walmgate street frontage. Well-preserved medieval and post-medieval structures lay close to the surface on the Walmgate street front. Nearby industrial activity was suggested by frequent finds of mould fragments, metalworking slag and furnace bases. A building with a sequence of cobble and mould fragment surfaces indicated a workshop which dated to the medieval period. A single inhumation was found.
