Archaeology Live! training excavation carried out between April and September 2015 by York Archaeological Trust at All Saints Church, North Street, York. The work was carried out on behalf of All Saints Church, North Street in advance of a proposed redevelopment of the site into residential cottages. The site is located beneath the footprint of the former church hall which was demolished in early 2014. The excavation of this area revealed extensive evidence for 19th century deposits and structures relating to the construction of the church hall, numerous burials relating to the areas use as a grave yard from 1826 to 1854 and some evidence for earlier pits, structures and deposits. The residual finds recovered throughout the season, however, seem to indicate continuous activity in the area from at least the Roman period onwards with a few earlier prehistoric finds.
