Description
"A single 3 x 3 m trench was excavated to a depth of 2m within the standing building between Parliament Street and Pavement in advance of re-development of the site.

A series of pits and external deposits typical of backyards in the medieval period were identified beneath a modern concrete floor. A significant well-stratified group of pottery and tile dateable to between 11th and 13th century was recovered, suggesting that remains of this period survive scarcely disturbed by later activity.

A series of monitoring devices was inserted both inside and outside of the building to record moisture levels in an attempt to determine whether the piled foundations of the new store are affecting the below ground movement of water. This work forms part of a joint project with York City Council, Hunting Land and Environment and the Environmental Archaeology Unit of the University of York."
