Description
Excavations of upper deposits hinted at Roman occupation and timber buildings which was not investigated and continuous occupation of the site from the 12th to the 17th century.

The first building was used as the 13th century church of the Carmelite Friary which was extended westwards and a burial ground was laid out to the south. The east end of the church remained in use as a chapel, and the remainder of the building was partitioned into a number of rooms divided by a screens passage. Subsidiary buildings were added forming St Mary's Hospital in the Horsefair.

In the 15th century the character of the hospital was altered and successively modified in the 15th and 16th century. The buildings were again altered in the 16th century when they were occupied by St Peter's School. The buildings were finally demolished in the mid 17th century when they were damaged in the Civil War siege of York. The site was abandoned until housing was built in the 19th century.
