Abstract

In February 2005, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation adjacent to the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford (NGR SP 51520693), on behalf of Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd. The trenches revealed a layer of buried 'supernatural' red/brown subsoil above the natural gravel, a common feature of Oxford sites. Above the natural in both trenches lay buried garden / orchard soils of post-medieval data. A Victorian quarrying pit was observed as well as modern 20th century services. no significant archaeology was identified within the trenches.
