Abstract

An archaeological trench was excavated by Archaeology South-East at the rear of the Ye Olde Reindeer public house, Banbury on behalf of the ‘Pub Dig’ television programme. The earliest feature was a twelfth- or thirteenth-century ditch, possibly a burgage plot boundary associated with the laying out of the medieval planned town. The site remained open ground until the fifteenth century when a substantial masonry kitchen building with oven(s) was constructed. A diverse macrobotanical assemblage was recovered from deposits associated with the use of the kitchen. The kitchen building was demolished by the late sixteenth century, possibly as the result of a change in ownership. Previously the identification of archaeological deposits associated with the medieval town has proved elusive and this is the first occasion that a significant stratified sequence of deposits has been demonstrated.
