In June and July 2007, Oxford Archaeology (OA) undertook an archaeological watching brief at the Chapel of St. John’s College, Oxford, prior to the installation of foundations for a new organ. Excavation of the foundation pits for the new structure revealed six brickbuilt burial vaults containing human remains, probably of late 17th or 18th century date. Two of the vault roofs had been disturbed during the installation of stone heating ducts in the 19th century. As a result of the discoveries, the design of the foundation pads was altered to accommodate the preservation of the burial vaults in situ.
