The archaeological investigation is being funded by Hungate (York) Regeneration Ltd., a joint venture between Crosby Lend Lease, Evans Property Group and Land Securities Group PLC, as part of the work being carried out to create the new Hungate urban neighbourhood. The close working relationship between Hungate (York) Regeneration Ltd, York Archaeological Trust and City of York Council has enabled the development of this exciting archaeological project which includes unparalleled views, tours and access to York's resonant past. York Archaeological Trust offers various Dig Hungate education packages and community archaeology opportunities that add value to the experiences, insights and knowledge that everyone involved in Dig Hungate embrace. The archaeologists of York Archaeological Trust are revealing past chapters of the buried history of Hungate, whilst a new chapter is written, and a new Hungate community is created.
