Title 28 Claremont Terrace, York
Date/Year 2019


Groundworks revealed articulated and disarticulated human remains. The burials had been disturbed by the construction of Claremont Terrace in the late 19th century. The archaeological deposits consisted of layers containing residual Roman, medieval, and post-medieval pottery interspersed amongst articulated and disarticulated human remains. An articulated inhumation laid within a reused Roman Oolitic limestone and mortar lined grave was observed during groundworks. During the assessment of the articulated and disarticulated remains, a total of twelve individuals were identified and are believed to date to the known 12th-16th century burial ground of St Giles Church. However, the style of the grave may indicate that the burial ground was active Pre-Conquest.
