Abstract :
Fletcher's House, Woodstock, home of the Oxfordshire Museum, has recently been refurbished for new display galleries, and further buildings have been built and renovated within the grounds. This created an opportunity for archaeological investigation within the town unparalleled since its designation as a conservation area. The building and site were subject to a series of archaeological watching briefs during the course of this work by several professional bodies, the most recent of which concentrated on the building itself. This showed that the essential core of Fletcher's House is an early example of a 'double-pile' house, built by Alderman Thomas Browne in 1614. Combined with the work of two local history groups which gathered much of the documentary evidence, this study considers the historical and architectural development of the house and grounds. ;
