Abstract

Between October 2014 and January 2015 Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological watching brief during the demolition and ground preparation work on the site of the Phase 2 New Biochemistry Building, Dorothy Hodgkin Road, Oxford (NGR: SP 5154 0700). The watching brief observed that the majority of the site had been severely truncated by the construction and demolition of the buildings on the site, with any intact archaeological stratigraphy and the upper part of the underlying terrace gravel deposits having been greatly disturbed. Within a narrow band along the north and north-east edges of the site the supranatural sub-soils overlying the natural gravels of the 2nd terrace had partially survived, with the truncated base of an east-west aligned early Post-medieval ditch observed and recorded. No other significant archaeology was encountered, no other archaeological remains are likely to be present on the site.
