Medieval friary stonework among finds at Yorkshire dig

A team of archaeologists from AOC Archaeology Group, along with members of the community, were intrigued by discoveries resulting from two weeks of excavations near York, England's Guildhall. The workers found artifacts dating from Roman times through World War II, including evidence of a medieval friary.

“These included finely-carved pieces of medieval window surround – hinting at what might survive of the medieval friary buildings that occupied the site – as well a beautiful wall plaster decorated with floral motives and animals,” said a spokeswoman.
