OA carried out field evaluation at Paradise Street, Oxford. The evaluation revealed a limestone spread which may have formed part of an early for or weir at the point where the castle moat fed into the Mill Stream. Layers of re-deposited clay and gravel were also discovered, which probably date to the construction of the defences of the adjacent Oxford Castle. The floor of a probable 13th century building was discovered at the north end of the area excavated. A sequence of metalled surfaces related to Paradise Street itself, dating to between the 13th and 16th centuries, along with a road-side drainage ditch.
