|Title||ARCHAEOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS AT 12-18 SWINEGATE, 14 LITTLE STONEGATE AND 18 BACK SWINEGATE|
This report relates to two of York Archaeological Trust’s excavations, the first at 12-18 Swinegate and the second at 14 Little Stonegate and 18 Back Swinegate. These excavations took place between October 1989 and July 1990, and they represent two of the most interesting, though little known of the Trust’s excavations. A total of fifteen trenches were excavated, and these revealed a complex sequence of deposits dating from Roman times to the post-medieval period, together with a number of exceptional artefacts including a collection of well-preserved wooden coffins of late 9th to early-11th century date, and a group of writing tablets of mid-14th century date.
