Source/Archive record SYO2906 - Regency Mews Assessment

Title Regency Mews Assessment
Date/Year 2022


Assessment report following strip, map and record investigation at 27 St Helens Rd, Regency Mews, York. Activity principally related to agricultural land management during the late 1st, 2nd and 3rd centuries. The investigations revealed a number of ditches, pits and a furrow. A Roman casklined well was discovered, the preserved timber remains were recovered along with an assemblage of pottery and environmental samples. The results of the strip map and record investigation has the potential to contribute important new evidence for the land use and landscape character and development of Roman Dringhouses and the wider extra-mural area of York. Later features, including ditches and a furrow, suggest continued agricultural activity into the medieval and post-medieval periods. A few modern features, including land drains and pits, were also present across the excavation area truncating the archaeology.
