Source/Archive record SYO2187 - Former Minster Car Hire, Micklegate EVA

Title Former Minster Car Hire, Micklegate EVA
Date/Year 2018


Natural sands were identified at a depth of approximately 3.5m below ground level (BGL). Above the natural was a sequence of deposits, features and structures likely dating to the Roman period and later. Early deposition and features include possible Roman occupation, dumping and/or levelling deposits. The Roman layers were overlain by garden or horticultural soils which probably accumulated during the medieval and post-medieval periods. Towards the top of the sequence were some substantial post-medieval brick-built structures, including a well. Associated deposits were most likely related to the subsequent demolition and clearance of the post-medieval structures before the construction of the existing garage building in the early 20th century.
