Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation at Wolvercote Paper Mill, Oxford, Oxfordshire (NGR SP 4879 0986). The work was commissioned by Buro Four on behalf of Oxford University. The evaluation revealed a number of scattered archaeological features dating from the Iron Age to the present day. In the north of the site a middle Iron
Age posthole and oval pit were revealed. A natural stream course was revealed running NW-SE across the site, medieval tile was recovered from its fills.
Along the southern edge and south-east corner of the site medieval and post-medieval ditches, post holes and pits were recorded. These features may be associated with medieval and post-medieval properties fronting
onto Mill Road, or earlier mills on the site. A millrace was located in the east of the site, which had been backfilled with material from the
demolition of the 19th-century mill, prior to the construction of the paper mill in 1953.
