Jesus College Porter's Lodge, University of Cambridge. An Archaeological Evaluation
A trench-based evaluation was undertaken within the Fellow's Gardenat Jesus College, Cambridge, in advance of the redevelopment of thePorter's Lodge. The presence of a medieval horticultural soil wasidentified, associated with the former Benedictine nunnery of StRadegund. Subsequently, at the end of the 15th century when thenunnery was converted into Jesus College, the site appears to havebeen landscaped and the ground level raised. Furtherlandscaping/planting bed deposits were also encountered of 19thcentury date, attesting to the long-lived usage of the area as agarden.
