Between the 12th January and the 1st March 2022 York Archaeology conducted an archaeological watching brief on Queen Street, York. The work was undertaken with Openreach for City of York Council (CYC). The works involved the monitoring and recording of two 3m by 2m trenches. Both trenches were required to be 3m in depth. The two trenches revealed vastly different archaeology. Within Trench 1 (Windmill PH Queen St) a full excavation was required. The trench contained a series of rubbish pits dating to the 2nd and 3rd century containing a large quantity of finds, both locally produced and imports from elsewhere in the Roman Empire. Trench 2 showed evidence of landscaping resulting from construction of the railway station in the 19th century, including disruption to the Roman cemetery below. Further analysis on the pottery recovered from trench 1 will be undertaken.
