York Archaeological Trust's Resilience Projects

PrintOur collection represents one of the most extensive archaeological assemblages from Britain and, as such, it is of national, regional and local importance. The archive contains site records, artefacts and ecofacts from over 800 archaeological interventions ranging from major excavations to small evaluations and watching briefs.

The research potential is immense, as our collection includes a wide range of material types including artefacts, environmental soil samples, human remains and architectural fragments.

As the excavations were spread across the city they offer the potential to study specific districts as well as specific periods of history; given that the deposits excavated cover all periods of British history from the Romans to the Victorians.

We continue to engage new and current staff and volunteers with all of this work including intern placements within our Collections, Community and Marketing teams, and secondments throughout the organisation. You can read about their experiences here
