Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by Jessop and Cook on behalf of Hertford
College to undertake an archaeological watching brief of proposed new service routes
at Hertford College.
A total of five trenches were excavated across the College to facilitate the installation
of new electrical services. These were located within Old Quad (Trenches 1 and 4), New
Quad (Trenches 2 and 5) and Holywell Quad (Trench 3). The trenches varied in size and
ranged in depth from 0.40m bgl to 0.90m bgl (63.33m OD – 60.63m OD).
Previously unknown demolished foundation walls recorded within Holywell Quad are
considered significant as they probably relate to post-medieval tenements that would
have fronted onto Holywell Street during the 17th century. Archaeological deposits and
features recorded within Old Quad dating from the post-medieval period are
considered to be of some significance, since they could have been contemporary with
the later demolition and redevelopment phase of Hertford College during the 19th
