Abstract

Oxford Archaeology undertook a programme of archaeological investigations at St Peter’s College, Oxford as a part of the Perrodo Project, a scheme to improve the college’s public spaces. The investigations were situated at two locations, in Linton Quad and Chavasse Quad. The work in Linton Quad comprised a test pit followed by a watching brief during excavation of a soakaway and related service trenches and drainage works adjacent to the New Inn Hall Street frontage, while in Chavasse Quad a test pit was dug and a borehole survey carried out, after which a strip and record excavation was undertaken on the footprint of a proposed attenuation tank and a watching brief on the excavation of ground beams and services. An augur hole and borehole recorded evidence for a large negative feature (or features) that lie on the projected alignment of one possible projection of the western defences of Oxford’s original burh. Evidence was also found for medieval tenements that occupied this part of New Inn Hall Street before the eponymous academic hall was built, and the western range of the medieval hall itself was exposed.
