Abstract

An evaluation at this site revealed a possible prehistoric palaeo-channel, medieval and post-medieval soil horizons, a large limestone wall (of Victorian date) and a number of post-medieval and Victorian features. The impact of the construction of LittÌemore Hospital (in the 1840s) on the underlying deposits is discussed. The watching brief revealed a very low density of archaeological activity in the south and east areas of LittLemore Hospital. A probable medieval plough-soil was identified, but no archaeologicaL features were observed. A few sherds of medieval pottery were recovered during topsoil stripping
