Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by Oxfordshire County Council to
undertake a watching brief on the repairs to the footpath, landings and steps
at the Oxford Castle Mound, centered on NGR SP 50967 06201. The work was
undertaken between July and September 2021 and consisted of 16 areas
varying in size and depth.
The results of the watching brief have shown that archaeological deposits and
features associated with the history and development of the mound survive
within the site. The watching brief demonstrated that the upper deposits of
the mound are most likely post‐medieval in date, and the works did not intrude
into the original 11th‐century fabric of the mound.
It is anticipated that all archaeological deposits and features recorded during
this watching brief would be considered significant, as they help to further
understand the fabric, character, history and use of the mound since its
construction in the 11th century.
