Source/Archive record SYO2065 - Royal York Hotel and St Leonards GP

Title Royal York Hotel and St Leonards GP
Date/Year 1999


Work at the Royal York Hotel failed to identify any burials, though given the complications of the site this was not unexpected. However, the survey did identify a Roman building, which was interpreted as being a mausoleum. The question of additional buildings, identified on the resistance survey, remained unresolved in the time available. Both resistance and magnetic survey successfully pinpointed the ‘lost’ air raid shelter at St Leonard’s. In addition, resistance survey and GPR investigations identified two column bases that excavations subsequently demonstrated were associated with the medieval hospital. No illus in report. This report is same text as SYO437, but SYO437 jas illustrations.
