Between 1–12 July 2019, Oxford Archaeology carried out an intermittent
watching brief at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, on works to replace sub main
cables. Two main sections of cable trench were monitored. Walls from
building that are likely to relate to academic halls that predate the college
were uncovered, and two examples were cut by features containing material
of 13th -14th century date. A third pit contained roof tile of a similar date as
well as residual early medieval pottery. The alignment of one of the walls
suggest that the academic halls were set out a few degrees off the current
college’s layout.
The watching brief also covered intrusive groundworks associated with the
alterations to the college kitchen that were subject to separate building
recording survey. The bases of extant walls were found during these works. A
basement structure and former floor were also uncovered inside the western
range of the college buildings.
