Oxford Botanic Garden Well, Oxford, Oxfordshire. Archaeological Watching Brief (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-357078)

Oxford Archaeology has undertaken a small project to record a well which has been partially exposed towards the southern corner of the walled garden at the Botanic Gardens, Oxford. The well was revealed by contractors working to clear the felled branches of an important old Black Pine tree which had partially collapsed. The stone-lined well has a diameter of 85 cm and although it is largely filled with water it was possible to confirm that...

Cart-shed and granary, Heath Hall Farm (OASIS ID: stephenh1-365255)

Stephen Haigh
The cart-shed and granary at Heath Hall Farm is an 18th or early 19th century building, perhaps by John Carr. It is of considerable architectural significance, because of its simple but well executed exterior, its four upper cruck trusses of oak, and a small timber crane (also oak) set within a gable loading doorway, all of which make it a prestigious component of the home farm.

Longshaw Estate Substation (OASIS ID: archaeol5-358008)

Shannon Birds
Archaeological Research Services Ltd was commissioned by the National Trust to undertake an archaeological supervision, recording and reporting at the Longshaw Estate, Deryshire. The work forms a condition of a planning application for the construction of a new substation adjacent to the cafe. Longshaw Lodge was built in 1827 as a shooting box for the Duke of Rutland. As a result the site had the potential to contain historic evidence related to the landscape legacy...

Ashgrove Farm, Ardley, Oxfordshire. Historic Building Recording (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-353734)

Oxford Archaeology was commissioned to record Ashgrove Farm as it stood in March 2014, ahead of the proposed conversion of several of the agricultural buildings to domestic use, including the demolition of some of the twentieth-century agricultural buildings. Ashgrove Farm is a fairly small farm, set roughly around a farmyard. The current range of buildings date from the early-mid eighteenth century to the mid twentieth century and briefly consist of limestone threshing barn, pigsties, stables...

A total of 30 trenches were excavated at the site. A concentration of Early/Middle Bronze Age ditches and pits was recorded in the central part of the site, corresponding to a series of rectilinear and sub-circular enclosures noted by a previous geophysical survey. Activity in the northern and southern areas of...

Land off Salisbury Street, Amesbury, Wiltshire: Excavation

The excavation revealed several features of probable late Saxon date, including a number of aligned ditches (property boundaries), a dog burial within a pit and other smaller pits. Some of these features can be correlated with recorded documentary evidence. Medieval features include an east to west aligned ditch just to the north of the present day northern boundary wall of the former Redworth House, other ditches and some intercutting pits. In addition several other ditches...

214 Bursledon Road, Southampton. Archaeological Watching Brief (SOU1742)

Mr Pavel Danek obtained planning permission to build on land at 214 Bursledon Road, Southampton. A watching brief condition was placed on the planning permission because the site lies in Area 16 of the Local Areas of Archaeological Potential, and was some 65m from the line of the Roman Road from Southampton to Chichester. The watching brief was held on the excavation of the foundation trenches. Nothing of certain archaeological significance was found. The natural...

Abundance (Abundance H.Q.)

Andrew Reinhard
Abundance H.Q. was the 3rd base investigated by Andrew Reinhard for the No Man's Sky Archaeological Project. It is noteworthy for being the first glitched base to be documented levitating above the Atlas Rises-era planet's topography. Communication stations are both buried under bedrock out of reach, in topsoil, and suspended 5-20m above ground-level. The settlement is also the first to be documented relocating and rebuilding itself after player interference. The published site report was read...

Horner (\"Tohoulvaldou\"-Au�enposten)

Andrew Reinhard
"Tohoulvaldou"-Au�enposten is one of the rare player constructions that can be identified as a tomb. It is an astonishingly intricate construction hinting at the level of creativity No Man's Sky players could achieve. Six communication stations rest in a row, buried by the Atlas Rises update. The tomb itself was buried halfway by the cataclysm. Halfway through the exploration of the site, a system crash repositioned the tomb halfway across the planet, restoring it to...

GlassShop (Hiviehale Outpost)

Andrew Reinhard
The planet GlassShop in the Legacy is both paradox and contradiction: paradox because the same base unit exists in two places at once, and contradiction because a cold-weather crop currently grows on a hot-weather planet, albeit underground. One remarkable thing about the base of Hiviehale Outpost is that both the base-as-located and the generic base unit that marks the original outpost's location have the same name in their Base ID unit: "Hiviehale Outpost." Typically the...

Sosashibukay (Heart of Sosashibukay)

Andrew Reinhard
The Heart of Sosashibukay created by player Jen1892 is a farm notable for its ruined features created after the Atlas Rises v1.3 cataclysm. Immediately noticeable is the levitating crop of star bulb plants hovering meters above the surface, the planter lost in the update. Secondly, the base was half-buried in the landscape because of Atlas Rises, a feature which would have gone unnoticed had it not been for an archival photo showing the full height...

Eslachlan Kayham (Panda's)

Andrew Reinhard
Panda's base on Eslachlan Kayham was built on 27 August 2017, although the Legacy Hub planet had been discovered by Galactic Hub second-in-command AndyKrycek on 10 December 2016 and further explored by him in March, April, and August 2017, although he never built there. This is a rare example of a planet being discovered, visited, but not settled by the original player, instead inhabited by another Hub member months after the discovery. The base itself...

Langley_83_Alpha (Gemini Outpost)

Andrew Reinhard
Gemini Outpost on the planet Langley_83_Alpha (the name changed to Molshoy Hutoud in the Atlas Rises cataclysm) was created in the Pathfinder era by player SirDannyMacFinn. What remains is a classic set of ruins, which were abandoned by its creator, creating a textbook site for seeing the aftereffects of a major No Man's Sky software update. Atlas Rises not only buried the settlement under a hillside, but changed the climate and landscape from temperate and...

Land north of Felton, Alnwick, Northumberland. Archaeological Strip and Record (OASIS ID: adarchae1-306159)

AD Archaeology was commissioned and funded to undertake an archaeological strip and record on land at Felton, Northumberland which was required as mitigation to fulfil a planning condition prior to the construction of a housing development. The discovery and excavation of an Anglo-Saxon settlement during this project has provided a valuable contribution to the study of settlement from this period in the north-east England. Prehistoric activity on the strip and record area was represented by...
