Thursday 16th July
Pupils in Year 9 from the Enrichment Group at Cheney School had the chance to carry out a geophysical survey in Oxford Preservation Trust's garden to help further the knowledge of the Greyfriars and Westgate buildings outside the new development area. They were also taken on a guided tour of St. Ebbes by Oxford City Council's Planning Archaeologist, David Radford. The Field Trip ended with an exclusive visit to the archaeological excavations of the Westgate Oxford project, where they were able to handle finds, meet the archaeologists and see the remains for themselves. Everyone enjoyed themselves and a great day was had by all involved. Thank you Cheney School for coming to visit us!
