Title Archaeological Investigations at Stonebow, Pavement and Fossgate
Date/Year 2020


At the western end of the Stonebow excavation area post-medieval and modern buildings, which had formerly fronted onto the east side of Fossgate close to its junction with St Saviourgate, were encountered. To the east of the buildings backyard deposits, structures and features, including drains, soil accumulation and timber lined refuse and cess pits dating to the 9th to 14th century were encountered, a small selection of which were sampled. Much of the backyard deposition included a significant organic element, including worked timber, wicker, leather and other organic material, preserved by waterlogged conditions present at the site. Also at the eastern end of the site an area rich in gravel may be remains of the medieval Stonebow Lane.
