Description

Evaluation of 15 trenches at the site of a grain store (former airfield) at York. Evidence found of former World war II airfield structures. The trenches revealed limited areas where archaeological deposits might survive. A large percentage of the site has been subject of extensive surface reconstruction to a depth of up to 1m. This has truncated the surface of natural to such an extent that it is unlikely that any archaeological deposits will survive within these areas of the site.
