This report presents the results of over 40 years of
excavation, historic building survey and documentary
research that have been carried out by Oxford Archae-
ology and others at the site of the Cistercian house
of Rewley, a chantry founded in 1281. It became an
abbey and studium providing accommodation for monks studying at the university, and can therefore claim to be
one of Oxford’s earliest colleges. The railway station that
subsequently occupied the site in 1851 followed the
design of the Crystal Palace, built for the Great Exhibi-
tion, and was the last surviving representative of that
internationally important building.
