Monument record MYO3602 - Roman apsed building and mosaic pavement, Toft Green

Summary

In 1840, whilst the street (Toft Green) was being revetted adjacent to the Old Railway Station and almost opposite Barker Lane, a mosaic pavement set in a concrete floor 6 ins. Thick and wall foundations of an apsed building were uncovered at a depth of 6 ft. Although under the street, a collapse of soil enabled a large part of the mosaic to be recovered. The mosaic is now in the Yorkshire Museum and shows a bull with a fish tail. This is a separate apsed structure from that recorded as MYO3601. Both are recorded by RCHME as Monment 32
