Source/Archive record SYO1882 - 46-50 Piccadilly DBA

Title 46-50 Piccadilly DBA
Date/Year 2016


The development site, 46—50 Piccadilly, lies within an area of considerable archaeological importance for understanding the morphology of the River Foss river regime and associated occupation and interactions of past local populations. An small excavation carried out by York Archaeological Trust in 1992 provides a guide indicating that well-preserved waterlogged deposits of the Roman, Anglo-Scandinavian, and medieval periods are overlain by postmedieval and modern, non-waterlogged deposits which form in total around 8m of deposition below the present ground level.
