Introduction

Worcester College, Oxford: New Sub Main. Archaeological Watching Brief (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-308405)

Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by Carter Jonas LLP on behalf of the Provost and Fellows of Worcester College to undertake an archaeological watching brief on the site of the renewal of electrical sub main cables and ducting for data cables through Pump Quad and then around the Main Quad. The trenching revealed a series of layers dating from the 18th century overlain by modern material. Excavation through the large bank on the north side of Main Quad indicated that it was constructed up against the current buildings as opposed to pre-dating them.
