Between October 2014 and January 2015 Oxford Archaeology undertook an
archaeological watching brief during the demolition and ground preparation work on
the site of the Phase 2 New Biochemistry Building, Dorothy Hodgkin Road, Oxford
(NGR: SP 5154 0700).
The watching brief observed that the majority of the site had been severely
truncated by the construction and demolition of the buildings on the site, with any
intact archaeological stratigraphy and the upper part of the underlying terrace gravel
deposits having been greatly disturbed.
Within a narrow band along the north and north-east edges of the site the supranatural
sub-soils overlying the natural gravels of the 2nd terrace had partially
survived, with the truncated base of an east-west aligned early Post-medieval ditch
observed and recorded.
No other significant archaeology was encountered, no other archaeological remains
are likely to be present on the site.
