Source/Archive record SYO953 - Tenneco Site Manor Lane

Title Tenneco Site Manor Lane
Date/Year 2006


An archaeological watching brief was carried out by the York Archaeological Trust on the former site of the Tenneco Factory, Manor Lane, Rawcliffe. This involved the observation of service and foundation trenches, and roadways for a new housing development. Archaeology on the site was represented by deposits thought to be associated with a pond containing waterlogged deposits in which medieval pottery and two architectural fragments, at least one of which may have been part of a stone Roman sarcophagus, were found. Two ditches of unknown date were also recorded.
