Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological watching brief at Pembroke
College, Oxford, between October and December 2019. The work was
commissioned by Pembroke College and involved the monitoring of the
groundworks associated with upgrading the electrical supply.
The 0.5m to 0.6m wide and c 0.5m deep trenches had an accumulated length
of approximately 230m. They extended from St Ebbes Street in the west, via
Fellows Garden and the Chapel Quad to the Old Quad in the east.
All the trenches were cut into the modern backfill of previous underground
service trenches. The monitoring of the groundworks revealed a general
stratigraphic sequence of paving stones overlying bedding sand overlying a
garden soil of dark greyish brown sandy clay.
No archaeological deposits of pre‐modern date were observed. Residual finds
of post‐medieval and modern date, including pottery, clay tobacco pipe, glass
and animal bone, were identified
