Abstract

Between 4th and 21st January 2010 Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological evaluation at Warneford Hospital, Headington, Oxford on behalf of GBS Consulting. Five evaluation trenches were excavated to assess the presence and condition of any archaeological deposits within the site of a proposed development. These trenches were located to provide maximum coverage of areas of potential development impact whilst taking into consideration the results of a previous geophysical survey. Archaeological deposits were observed in only a single trench, indicating a low level of early activity on the site. A single linear ditch containing pottery of Roman date was observed as was a single small undated posthole nearby to the west. Between July and August 2011, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Warneford Hospital Sports Field, Oxford. The work was commissioned by Kier Moss and involved the monitoring of ground-works during the construction of a single storey and a two storey structure along with a new car park. No archaeological features, deposits or artefacts were observed.
