In November 2001 and January 2002 OA carried out archaeological recording action in Christ Church Cathedral during the re-positioning of St Frideswide's Shrine to its original approximate medieval location in the Latin Chapel.

The work revealed that the shrine had been rebuilt at least once, with replacement stones incorporated in the original structure. The shrine had previously been moved to the Lady Chapel in 1889, where it overlay a grave slab dated to 1632.
