ARCHAEOLOGISTS working for City of York Council may have found evidence of a medieval church in King’s Square.

The team is working to transform the square, and also found the foundations of a Victorian church at the site during the dig.

John Oxley, the council’s archaeologist, said: “Over the next couple of weeks the archaeologists will clean and record the remains of the church and remove any burials that might be affected by the resurfacing works. This is very exciting as opportunities, however brief, to look at these vanished churches in York are very rare.”

The works are not expected to cause any delays to the improvements.
