York Archaeology is poised to continue its excavation efforts at Willow House into 2024 and there will be some exciting new opportunities for local people to get involved. This year marked a significant point in the excavation which helped uncover more evidence of the history of Victorian Walmgate, particularly the discovery of 19th century domestic structures along former Willow Street. Excitingly, the team have also discovered our first tantalising evidence of intact medieval archaeology!

We will be holding a drop in consultation at Willow House on

Saturday January 13th  between 10am and 2pm

where you can learn more about the project. Can’t make it? Please send any questions or comments to takepart@yorkat.co.uk or by post to Arran Johnson, Community Engagement Dept., St. Saviour’s Church, St. Saviourgate, York, YO1 8NN by January 20th.
