Abstract

As part of the Government’s Primary Capital Programme, North Yorkshire County Council has applied for planning permission for works to improve the Friarage Community Primary School in Scarborough (NGR TA 0451 8881; Fig 1). Part of these works include the provision of a Multi-User Games Area (MUGA) within the current playground. The Friarage School is located within the medieval town of Scarborough, on the approximate site of the former Franciscan Friary. As such, North Yorkshire County Archaeological Services (NYCAS) requested a programme of desk-based assessment and evaluation excavations, in the form of trial trenches, to assess the impact of the development on potential archaeological remains. Jacobs Engineering UK Ltd (Jacobs) was commissioned by North Yorkshire County Council to compile a desk-based assessment for the site (Jacobs 2009a). Following the results of this, Jacobs was requested to prepare a Written Scheme of Investigation (WSI) for the required archaeological trial trenching of the site. Oxford Archaeology North were subsequently commissioned by North Yorkshire County Council to undertake the excavation of the trial trenches.
