The work folllowed recommendations made by North Yorkshire County Council's Assistant Archaeological Officer, after consultation with York Archaeological Trust. Persimmon Homes provided York Archaeological Trust with information obtained from four borholes that had been sunk on the site prior to the commencement of the archaeological evaluation. The earthwork survey was undertaken prior to the commencement of building works. Only the northern half of the site was examined. The watching brief was carried out during the construction of the road system within the housing development.
