Archaeological evaluation at Oxford Radcliffe Infirmary

Archaeological fieldwork for Oxford Radcliffe Infirmary

Client: 
Oxford University Estates Services and Oxford City Council
Date: 
2008-2012

Working alongside Oxford University Estates Services and Oxford City Council during the demolition of the Radcliffe Infirmary MOLA carried out a detailed archaeological investigation.

“Thorough research and carefully planned site investigations by MOLA enabled the University to fully investigate the archaeology in advance of seeking planning approval on a phased development basis.”
Colin McAuley, Oxford University Estates Services

An initial Desk-Based Assessment and Environmental Statement were undertaken in addition to a preliminary study of the burial ground. The excavation of trial trenches and a subsequent open-area were phased to operate within the developers’ multi-phase schedule and ensure no delays to the work programme. Despite the complexity of the scheme and the importance of the archaeology, MOLA’s large multi-disciplinary team ensured the programme ran smoothly.
