Between 1–12 July 2019, Oxford Archaeology carried out an intermittent watching brief at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, on works to replace sub main cables. Two main sections of cable trench were monitored. Walls from building that are likely to relate to academic halls that predate the college were uncovered, and two examples were cut by features containing material of 13th -14th century date. A third pit contained roof tile of a similar date as well as residual early medieval pottery. The alignment of one of the walls suggest that the academic halls were set out a few degrees off the current college’s layout. The watching brief also covered intrusive groundworks associated with the alterations to the college kitchen that were subject to separate building recording survey. The bases of extant walls were found during these works. A basement structure and former floor were also uncovered inside the western range of the college buildings.
