Abstract

From March to April 2003 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Former Garage, Dawson Street, Oxford, Oxfordshire (NGR SP 5245 0580). The work was commissioned by Knowles and Son Ltd and Dawson Trust in advance of construction of new student accommodation. The watching brief revealed a sequence of soil layers above the natural, some of which probably date to the medieval period when the site was unoccupied/pasture land. A post-medieval soil was cut by a pit containing a pig skeleton. No evidence for the possible site of Oxford's Civil War defences was observed during the work.
