Description

An archaeological evaluation by trial trenching was carried out at the site of the proposed Harewood Whin Green Waste Composting Facility, York The work followed an earlier geophysical (magnetometer) survey, which suggested low archaeological potential for the site. Eighteen trial trenches were excavated revealing an extensive number of furrows and field drains, confirming the interpretation of the geophysical survey. Two linear features were identified as the possible remains of late 18 th-century hedge boundaries and an undated negative feature may be contemporaneous.
