Churchill Hospital, Oxford, Clinical Biomanufacturing Facility

Booth, Paul Churchill Hospital, Oxford, Clinical Biomanufacturing Facility. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




Two evaluation trenches were excavated in October 2015 at the Churchill Hospital, Oxford on the site of the proposed Clinical Biomanufacturing Facility, immediately west of the location of Roman pottery kilns excavated in the early 1970s. The sequence in both trenches comprised the natural sand subsoil overlain by a brown sand deposit of uncertain date. This was cut in both trenches by a large pit containing modern building material amongst other rubbish. These two intrusions were probably parts of a single feature, the limits of which to north, south and east are unknown but was at least 12m in extent north-south by at least 7m east-west. In Trench 2 the base of this feature was c 1.2m below modern ground level and any earlier deposits in this area would have been completely destroyed. The fill of the feature(s) was sealed by a levelling layer of similar material beneath the current carpark surface. No features or deposits of archaeological interest were present and only a single sherd of Roman pottery was recovered
