Description

Site code: YMC13. A geophysical (magnetometer) survey covering approximately 50 hectares was carried out on agricultural land at Monks Cross, York, to inform the determination of an outline planning application for the proposed development of the site. The anomalies identified generally correspond to features depicted on the first edition Ordnance Survey map (1854) and are consistent with a 19th and 20th century agricultural landscape. No anomalies of archaeological potential have been identified. Therefore, on the basis of the geophysical survey, the site is considered to be of low archaeological potential
