Abstract

In October and November 2001 OA carried out an archaeological watching brief at Oxford Castle Mound, New Road, Oxford. The watching brief took the form of a photographic record of the installation of new lighting in the well chamber of the mound and the erection of a new gate to the well chamber; a new fence was also erected at the base of the mound. Excavations were limited to a shallow trench for a new electricity cable dug up the side of the mound and the excavation of small pits for the erection of the new gate and fence. The floor deposits of the well chamber and base of its stair well were partly excavated and inspected; a bowl from a late 18th century clay pipe was recovered from the floor.
