Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation between 9th and 11th December 2002 on land belonging to St Catherine’s College, Oxford (NGR SP 5220 0690) on behalf of the college and architects Hodder Associates. Five trenches were excavated and the work revealed a former land surface and ditch dated to the late 18th century in one of the trenches. A trench excavated across the line of a raised trackway produced no dating evidence for its construction, while the remaining three trenches were devoid of archaeological features. Within these alluvial deposits formed on the River Cherwell floodplain were identified, sealed beneath over 1 m of raised ground formed when the college buildings were erected on the site.
