Source/Archive record SYO1999 - Lowfields School GP

Title Lowfields School GP
Date/Year 2017


Magnitude Surveys was commissioned to assess the subsurface archaeological potential of a c. 3.4ha area over the site of the former Lowfield School in Acomb, York. A fluxgate gradiometer survey was successfully completed and no anomalies of probable or possible archaeological origin have been detected. The geophysical results primarily reflect modern activity, relating to the playing fields, and agricultural anomalies. Strong anomalies following a typical drainage pattern have been detected, as have former field boundaries, and ferrous responses relating to boundaries and sports equipment.
