Description

A scheme of archaeological evaluation was undertaken at 63-67 Micklegate, York. Three evaluation trenches were excavated; two in Dodsworth's Yard and one in a courtyard garden belonging to Number 65 Micklegate. The standing buildings were also the subject of a buildings assessment carried out by the Historic Buildings Section of FAS, the results of which were provided in an earlier report (FAS-ymk02). The evaluation revealed that significant archaeological remains survive immediately below the current ground surface throughout the site. Four main phases of activity were defined belonging to the medieval and early post-medieval period. Two phases of high status domestic activity were found dating to the 11th to 13th centuries and the 15th to 16th centuries. A late medieval bronze foundry and the remains of early post-medieval buildings were also encountered.
