Archaeological interventions carried out at the former site of the Peasholme Hostel and Haymarket Car Park since 1986 have produced a valuable archaeological resource for understanding the community and landscape of All Saints in the Marsh, Peasholme. More than 700 skeletons recovered from the church and grave yard form the bulk of the archaeological assemblage from the site. A pilot study of 30 skeletons from the church and grave yard of All Saints in the Marsh, Peasholme, and the assessment of associated artefact assemblages and primary site archives from interventions commissioned by City of York Council since 1986 comprise a research archive, the integrated analysis and dissemination of which has high potential for community heritage experience and understanding outcomes.
