The Oxford Archaeological Unit carried out a field evaluation at Salter's Boatyard, Folly Bridge, Oxford for Knowles and Son Ltd, on behalf of Hertford College. The evaluation revealed the remains of a building, dated to the 19th century or later by a small quantity of 19th century pottery and clay pipe fragments. Findings were otherwise limited to dumping and levelling deposits of 19th century date. These were excavated to a maximum depth of 1.25 metres and produced finds ranging from the 12th to the 20th centuries. The earliet deposit in Trench 1 (100) produced a single sherd of Tudor Green ware and could potentially date from as early as the 16th century. However, the same deposit also produced a clay pipe stem, suggesting that a later date is perhaps more likely. The medieval material occurred in 19th and 20th century made ground deposits and need not derive from the site itself.
