From July to October 2000 and April to May 2001, York Archaeological Trust undertook a
large-scale open area excavation at 41-49 Walmgate, York on behalf of our client
Evans of Leeds. The excavations uncovered the complex development history of timber
and timber-framed buildings from the Anglo-Scandinavian period through to modern times.
For a period of c. 400 years metalworking appears to have been one of the principle
occupations within these buildings. The results are presented in the
Excavations section, and the finds, environmental evidence
and structural analysis in the Finds section of this website.
Within this section the reader will find information on the background and location of the
excavations and much more.
