The two main fieldwork phases of mitigation excavation and provisional post-excavation for Fishergate House (Intervention 1,2 and 4) and Blue Bridge Lane (Intervention 15 to 22), were organised and supervised by Annette Roe and Stephen Timms respectively. The photographic survey of the wartime prefabricated huts (Intervention 3) was undertaken by Dr Jonathan Clarke; detailed post-excavation and reporting for the project was undertaken by Cecily Spall, with AutoCad drawings prepared by Toby Lewis-Simpson, and finds illustration by Richard Jackson. Publication texts were prepared by Cecily Spall and Nicky Toop. The project was managed by Justin Garner-Lahire, while the evaluation and mitigation programmes were designed and monitored by Mike Griffiths of Mike Griffiths and Associates Ltd.
The field team who were involved in various stages of excavation were as follows: Andrew Copp, Lars Gustavsen, Richard Jackson, Toby Simpson, Luigi Signorelli, Malin Holst, Stephen Rowland, Chris Fern, Rochelle Ramey, Peter Glew, Bjarne Gaut, Rebecca Cannell, Margarethe Felter, Alec Trevarthen, Abigail Harrap, and Isobel Mason.
Fieldwork was undertaken in accordance with two separate archaeological mitigation strategies prepared by Mike Griffiths and Associates in response to respective residential and commercial developments. It was agreed with John Oxley, Principal Archaeologist, City of York Council that the two sites be published simultaneously; consequently, this report has merged the results of excavation at Fishergate House and Blue Bridge Lane. For the purposes of this final synthesis, the results of preceding archaeological evaluation programmes at both sites as well as at nearby Marlborough Grove have also been subsumed into the field account where appropriate and where the evidence permitted.
