Source/Archive record SYO1911 - Burials at St. Benet's - article on a furnished grave
|Title||Burials at St. Benet's - article on a furnished grave|
During excavations by York Archaeological Trust in 1989 – 1990 at 12-18 Swinegate and 14 Little Stonegate/18 Back Swinegate, 100 burials associated with the church of St. Benet’s were revealed, scattered across 15 trenches. No longer in existence, the church is recorded as having been demolished sometime before 1316, although there is no record of the date of its foundation; the excavations, however, have proved that burials in the cemetery of St. Benet had begun by the 890s, and certainly continued into the late 11th/early 12th centuries.
