Abstract

The Oxford Archaeological Unit carried out a field evaluation at 37a St Giles, Oxford on behalf of Oxford University Press. The evaluation revealed a series of medieval pits, a medieval linear feature, and a large feature interpreted as a gravel extraction pit. The small pottery assemblage, in combination with stratigraphic evidence, suggests that some of the medieval features could date from as early as the 11th century, but most are likely to be of 13th century or later date. The range of Medieval finds and features is similar to that found at other sites in the vicinity and is typical of the range of features expected to the rear of medieval suburban burgage plots.
