Abstract

Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological watching brief at Pembroke College, Oxford, between October and December 2019. The work was commissioned by Pembroke College and involved the monitoring of the groundworks associated with upgrading the electrical supply. The 0.5m to 0.6m wide and c 0.5m deep trenches had an accumulated length of approximately 230m. They extended from St Ebbes Street in the west, via Fellows Garden and the Chapel Quad to the Old Quad in the east. All the trenches were cut into the modern backfill of previous underground service trenches. The monitoring of the groundworks revealed a general stratigraphic sequence of paving stones overlying bedding sand overlying a garden soil of dark greyish brown sandy clay. No archaeological deposits of pre‐modern date were observed. Residual finds of post‐medieval and modern date, including pottery, clay tobacco pipe, glass and animal bone, were identified
