Historic bones have been found on The Shambles meaning the work to install the anti-terror bollards will be delayed.

Historic bones have been found on The Shambles meaning the work to install the anti-terror bollards will be delayed.

The bone fragments are likely to have been part of the neighbouring St. Crux burial ground and have been sent for analysis with York Archaeological Trust

A spokesperson for City of York Council said: “The working hours of contractors installing city centre safety measures are extending as historic bones are found next to a Medieval burial ground.”

From next week on The Shambles, work will take place 8am-7pm Monday–Friday, and 8am–4pm on Saturdays.
