Source/Archive record SYO2008 - Rear of 27 Bootham EVAL

Title Rear of 27 Bootham EVAL
Date/Year 2017


Evaluation trench excavated in the private car park located to the rear of 27 Bootham. The archaeological evaluation was undertaken in response to a pre-planning condition on a proposed commercial development within the footprint of an existing car park. The evaluation trench (1.6 to 2m maximum depth) revealed evidence for archaeological levelling deposits and structures dating from the mid 19th century. These overlay a horticultural soil which contained finds material dating to the ### century. This soil extended beyond the maximum safe depth that could be achieved within this evaluation (c.2m). The archaeological deposits and features encountered within this trench were, overall, of local significance and low importance but it is possible that earlier archaeological deposits, of potentially greater significance and importance, are preserved at a greater depth.
