Finds from Tudor to Late 18th-century York
From the Judges Lodging, to Bedern, to Skeldergate, to Pawson’s Warehouse; these sites in the centre of York have revealed a wealth of objects from the late medieval to the early 18th-century periods. We have further examined, photographed and researched objects from these important excavations carried out in the 1980’s and 1990’s making them exhibition-ready for the future.
To complete the work we seconded five of our Front of House Team to dedicate themselves to uncovering more from these important post-medieval sites in York. These five were; Paul Toy, Helen Houghton, Kate Fletcher, Zoe Durrant-Walker and Martin Whittaker. Working with YAT’s own historical researcher the team produced the project reports below.
