The remains of the Church of St John The Baptist, more commonly known as St John’s in the Marsh, have been found as part of the most extensive dig that York has seen since the early 1980s ahead of a £150m housing and retail development.
Members of the York Archaeological Trust (YAT), who have overseen the Hungate excavations, said it was “a dream come true” to discover the church’s foundations. And the public are being given the chance to witness the find during an open day this weekend after the remains were discovered by the YAT’s annual Archaeology Live! training school.
