Three trenches were excavated to examine the character and chronology of deposits in areas due to be developed for student accommodation. Evidence for
probable river channels and sequences of silting, some dating from the 13th century onwards, was recovered. Part of a waterlogged timber structure of
medieval date was found relatively close to the line of the Trill Mill Stream, and medieval floor surfaces were encountered beneath 42 St Aldates. Otherwise,
structural remains on the site were of 17th-18th century and later date. The project archive and finds will be deposited with Oxfordshire Museums.
