This wonderful batch of Yorkstone paving was laid in the Longwall Quad at Magdalen in the 1920's to a scheme by Giles Gilbert Scott. Preliminary work to the Quad is now underway prior to the building of a new Library extension. The Longwall itself has been under-pinned and extensive archeology has un-earthed at least 60 medieval skeletons (in a cemetary distinct from the Jewish cemetary that was on the site of the botanic gardens) and foundations to what was once a hospital.
