Monument record MYO3878 - Field at Thorntree Hill, Thorntree Hill, Dunnington, York


The deposits recorded on this site were the ploughed out remains of road metalling, and the cuts and fills of ditches on each side of the road. Additionally there was a surface spread of ploughed soil. The road, of Roman date, appeared to link York, to the west to Stamford Bridge, to the east. Well preserved environmental deposits within the ditch fills suggest that settlement was in close association with the road, but no evidence for this was encountered within the excavated area.
