Abstract

Prior to a proposed development (planning reference: APP/C2741/A/06/2008620) by McCarthy and Stone (Developments) Ltd on land at 23-31 The Village, Wigginton (NGR SE 601 585), an archaeological desk-based assessment was undertaken by CgMs Consulting. This identified a good archaeological potential for the site, on the basis of nearby Roman, Saxon and medieval sites. As a result, the City of York Archaeologist requested that an archaeological evaluation of the site should be undertaken to further inform the planning process. CgMs Consulting commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake the evaluation trenching, which took place over seven days from 6th to 14th November 2006. The evaluation initially comprised five 2m wide trenches, varying in length between 4.5 and 15m. Significant archaeological remains were found in two of the trenches (Trenches 1 and 2, at the northern end of the site) which, following consultation with the City of York Archaeologist, were expanded to a width of 4m and 5m, respectively.
