Abstract

In December 2004 and January 2005 Oxford archaeology carried out an archaeological watching brief during the excavation of contractor's test-pits at The Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. The work was commissioned by Mace Ltd, in advance of an extension with basements to the rear of the museum. The watching brief revealed evidence for medieval and post-medieval tenements that once fronted onto St Giles. A large possible medieval pit was seen and several footings were identified within the test pits, including a possible cellar wall. Much of the area had been disturbed by services and the construction of the museum buildings in the late 19th century. (Accession Number: 2004.60)
