In September I997 the Oxford Archaeological Unit conducted a field evaluation of the area to be impacted upon by the proposed development and extension of the Eastgate hotel, on the High Street, Oxford. This work was carried out on the behalf of Hinkins and Frewin, who were contracted to the hotel. Rodwell (1975) indicated that all of the property outside of the city wall,from here to Rose Lane, and from the High Street almost to the Christchurch meadows, was the
property of the Trinitarian Friars in the 13th and 14th centuries. No evidence was found for use
of the site by the Trinitarian Friars, nor was there any evidence for defences associated with the
city wall. Evidence was found for use of the site as a garden in the post-medieval period, including garden features such as walls, buried soils and pits.
