We present neutron-scattering measurements of the excitations of liquid 4He confined in Vycor glass focussing on wavevectors in the range 1.55 Å-1⩽Q⩽1.80 Å-1 and temperatures around the superfluid—normal fluid critical temperature Tc. 4He adsorption isotherms have been measured on the Vycor sample in order to control filling. The superfluid density of 4He in the sample was measured using a sound velocity technique yielding a superfluid to normal fluid critical temperature of Tc=2.05 K at full filling. The liquid 4He in Vycor supports well-defined phonon-roton excitations above the critical temperature in Vycor suggesting the existence of localized Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) in the normal phase above Tc. The phonon-roton excitations (localized BEC) appear to exist up to temperatures of Tλ=2.17 K. At full filling the phonon-roton excitations have energies that are the same as those in bulk superfluid 4He within precision. The liquid also supports layer modes for wave vectors in the roton region (1.90 Å-1⩽Q⩽2.10 Å-1) as observed previously in Vycor, aerogel, MCM, and Geltech silica.
