13th October 2016:

This Saturday, archaeologists from Oxford Archaeology will be at the Museum of Oxford in Oxford's town hall to talk about recent excavations in the old Jewish Quarter of Oxford in St Aldate's and Queens Street. The archaeological work identified remains from Oxford's Saxon beginnings, revealing medieval life before the university, and recovered finds from the inns and taverns that subsequently occupied the site.

Visitors to the Museum of Oxford will have the chance to explore medieval life in Oxford, see finds from Jacobs Hall, one of the grandest buildings in Oxford in the 12th and 13th centuries, and learn more about the taverns and dwellings through the rich and varied remains. There will be finds handling, fun activities for all ages, and plenty of opportunity to ask questions.

What, where and when:

Saturday 15th October 12-5.30pm. Museum of Oxford, Town Hall, Oxford

Finds display and activities, 12-4.40pm in the Heritage Learning Centre

Talk by Carl Champness, Project Manager, 4.30-5.30pm in the Long Room
