A piece of leather thought to date from the medieval period was unearthed during work to replace a high-voltage cable near the centre of the city of York. Toby Kendall of the York Archaeological Trust said the piece of leather, which is decorated with an image of a dragon or another sort of mythical beast with wings, horns, and a tail, was found in waterlogged soil that was disturbed when sewers were installed more than 100 years ago.
