Abstract

In November 2009 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation comprising two trenches at St Peter's Church, Wolvercote, Oxfordshire (NGR SP 496 098),on behalf of Wolvercote PCC, in respect of an extension to the Church hall, with a connecting covered walkway to the Church. In Trench 1 four inhumations, one with with associated post-medieval coffin fittings, and three unexcavated features, all likely to be graves, were revealed. In Trench 2, one inhumation and nine unexcavated features, all likely to be graves, were found. A grave memorial was also found in Trench 2 just below the topsoil. The memorials within the development area were lifted and moved to the northwestern portion of the graveyard. The stones and inscriptions were recorded as were the original and new locations during the second half of 2010.
