Archaeological Evaluation at Ambrosden Court Merton Road (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-287470)

In November 2015 13 trenches were excavated across a proposed housing development at Ambrosden Court, Merton Road, Ambrosden, Oxfordshire centred on SP 6018 1911. Evidence was found for agricultural activity of late medieval to post-medieval date across the site in the form of field drainage furrows, ditches and drains. The 19th century OS mapping for the area shows that the western side was regarded as marshy ground. This has been substantiated by the sequence of...

Dividing the Land

Seren Griffiths
Field systems are ubiquitous features of the English countryside and despite much work on their character having taken place for almost a century relatively little is known about their chronology. This project addressed this imbalance by utilising the research potential of developer-funded scientific dating (which provides an estimated c 80% of archaeological radiocarbon dating in England) together with data from published sources to produce a detailed narrative of the chronological development of field systems in...

Holy Trinity Church, Watermoor, Cirencester, Gloucestershire. An Archaeological Watching Brief Report (OASIS ID: urbanarc1-289653)

Chiz Harward
Watching brief on the excavation of a new water pipe connection pit within the churchyard, west of the church. A homogenous 'Dark Earth' type deposit was recorded to a depth of 0.9m bpgl within the pit. Most of the pit had been previously disturbed by trenches for two water pipes and the impact of the excavation on undisturbed archaeological remains was minimal. The presence of Dark Earth adds to similar observations from many nearby archaeological...

Wellhead Lane, Perry Barr, Birmingham: Archaeological Excavation
