Title Archaeological Investigations at The City of York Guildhall
Author/Originator
Date/Year 2020

Abstract/Summary

Ongoing work at the Guildhall complex has identified evidence for the natural topography with a steep slope towards the River Ouse. Roman occuapation consists of a series of metalled surface that may be a yard or truncated surfaces of the road to the Roman bridge crossing for the River Ouse. Medieval sequences suggest the area around the Guildhall was open land in this period suggested by the presence of horticultural soils. There is evidence for extensive dumping of material to raise the ground level prior to the construction of the 19th century buildings
