New Schools, Common Lane, Eton College, Berkshire

Score, Dave and Hiller, Jon New Schools, Common Lane, Eton College, Berkshire. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




In 2000 and 2001, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at New Schools, Eton College, Berkshire (NGR SU 966 780), during the refurbishment of existing, and the construction of new, school buildings; some older structures were removed in the course of the works. The College’s architects for the project commissioned the work. Limited excavations for new services and structures revealed soil layers interspersed with layers of building rubble that derive from construction of the buildings on the site. Elsewhere thick soil layers suggest that the ground level was raised when the New Schools buildings were constructed. A wall was found in the School Yard, and it is probably of 19th-century date.
