A number of interesting archeaological finds have been discovered in the process.

The latest was a 'stoneware flagon/vessel' which the college said is likely to be from the 17th Century.

It shared a photo of the historical jug on Instagram on Thursday.

Other items that have been found include a bone comb, a long-cross silver penny, and a decorated floor tile.

These were also shared on Instagram last year.

Brasenose College was given permission by Oxford City Council to refurbish and extend buildings within Frewin Quad on December 8, 2020.
