The potential for the presence of archaeological deposits from the Roman to modern periods at 22-26 Blossom Street, York. Archaeological investigations undertaken within the immediate area by L.P Wenham in 1953-55, at 16-20 Blossom Street, Prudential House and 28-40 Blossom Street identified extensive Roman remains including the Blossom Street Roman Cemetery, Roman Roads 9 and 10, as well as the remains of Roman building structures. These were all encountered between 13.57 –14.50m AOD. At least 0.50m of disturbed dark soil covers the Roman remains in this area, suggesting post-Roman clearing and dumping. During the medieval period the site was within an area of agricultural land. Due to 17th – 19th century garden landscaping of the Blossom Street area, Roman archaeology may be encountered at a relatively shallow depth within the garden area of the site.
