November 2018:  The sound of magic? Bells in Roman Britain
This project analysed Romano-British bells and explored their dates, contexts and spatial distribution; it is based on an unpublished MA dissertation by Sandie Williams. The material deposited here consists of a database of just over 300 examples and is accompagnied by an academic paper in the journal Britannia. This paper explores the significance of bells in the Roman world from both a ritual and functional perspective.

November 2018:  Sparks, Yarnscombe, Devon. Historic Building Recording (OASIS ID: southwes1-228431)
South West Archaeology Ltd. was commissioned to undertake historic building recording and archaeological monitoring at Sparks, Yarnscombe, Devon ahead of the proposed conversion of the barn. The primary barn structure was constructed during the 18th century, being adapted in the 19th century with the addition of two lean-to structures and internal alterations transforming it into animal housing. The addition of a small furnace in the 20th century converted the barn to industrial use.

November 2018:  Maeshowe: The Application of RTI to Norse Runes
The chambered cairn and passage grave at Maeshowe is well known for its runic inscriptions. The presence of several runic inscriptions in the main chamber and the SE side-chamber indicates later Norse re-use, probably during the mid-12th century. Our work set out to examine how far Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI) could reveal the sequence of overlapping carvings, in order to help recognise runes that are difficult to see with the naked eye or indeed with a camera and raking light flash. This study examines the materiality of the Maeshowe runes.

November 2018:  Former Castleford Hospital, Castleford, Wakefield, West Yorkshire. Historic Building Recording (OASIS ID: archaeol11-327192)

The small assemblage of artefacts recovered dates from the 16th century onwards. No evidence of medieval settlement or associated features were uncovered during the watching brief.

November 2018:  Land to the East of Whelford Road, Kempsford, Gloucestershire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-313883)
Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by West Waddy ADP on behalf of Pye Homes to undertake an archaeological evaluation of land to the east of Whelford Road, Kempsford, Gloucestershire in advance of proposed residential development. The evaluation uncovered a complex of archaeological features mostly situated in the western half of the site that corresponded closely with the results of the geophysical survey. Dating evidence was limited to only three sherds of pottery, but these indicate activity from the middle Iron Age and Roman periods.

November 2018:  Muswell Hill Manor, Brill, Piddington, Oxfordshire. Archaeological Watching Brief and Evaluation (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-204224)
During April and May 2014 Oxford Archaeology undertook a watching brief on the construction of a new drive, garage and turning area at Muswell Hill Manor, Brill, Piddington, Oxfordshire. The watching brief uncovered a ditch of medieval date, presumed to be a former field boundary, and a buried garden soil that could date to the 15th or 16th century. Tile fragments recovered from the ditch surrounding the Wilderness also dated to the 15th or 16th century, and may indicate that the enclosure was originally constructed as a garden feature.

November 2018:  Extension to 23 Banbury Road, Keble College, Oxford, Oxfordshire. Archaeological Watching Brief (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-313292)
In May 2014, Oxford Archaeology (OA) undertook an archaeological watching brief at 23 Banbury Road, Oxford. The watching brief was maintained during the excavation of strip foundation trenches and a reduced dig within the footprint of the new build. The excavation of the strip foundations revealed the natural gravels overlain by a post-glacial loess subsoil which overlies the gravel terrace upon which Oxford sits.

November 2018:  Bicester Village Phase 4, Bicester, Oxfordshire. Archaeological Watching Brief Report. (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-311209)
Between 31st August and 23rd September 2016, Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological watching brief, on behalf of Value Retail, on the footings and a service trench for a retail development at Bicester Village 4.

November 2018:  Land at Buckland Barton, Newton Abbot, Devon. Archaeological Evaluation and Excavation (OASIS ID: acarchae2-171234)
A trench evaluation was carried out by AC archaeology in January 2014 on land at Buckland Barton, Newton Abbot, Devon. Archaeological features were present in seven of the trenches and these consisted largely of linear features associated with an earlier field pattern. In addition, a concentration of features including pits and postholes in the southeast part of the site indicates the possible former presence of a wooden structure of unknown date, but probable agricultural function, in that area.

November 2018:  Historic Characterisation of Weston-super-Mare (Heritage Action Zone)

November 2018:  HMS Colossus Wrecking Project 2017
This project revisits the loss of the ship, the historic salvage of the wreck and the rediscovery of the site and subsequent excavation by Roland Morris in the 1970s. The evolution of our understanding of how and where Colossus was wrecked is examined in some detail. This is followed by an explanation of the new wrecking theory - and how the results of this year’s survey accord with it. Fieldwork was undertaken by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Maritime Archaeology Society (CISMAS) for two weeks in May 2017. Large areas of the seabed around the stern site were searched in detail in order to better understand the events leading to the present disposition of wreck material on the seabed. This was mainly prompted by the proposal of a new wrecking theory by CISMAS in 2015.

November 2018:  Origins of agriculture: archaeobotanical database
This database compiles, from published sources, the sample records of archaeobotanical (plant) remains from archaeological sites located in southwest Asia, central Anatolia and Cyprus dated to the Pre-Pottery Neolithic or earlier. Research The database contributes directly to the following publication, and users are referred to that article for further information on the development and intended use of the database: Wallace, M., Jones, G., Charles, M., Forster, E., Stillman, E., Bonhomme, V., Livarda, A., Osborne, C., Rees, M., Frenck, G., Preece, C. Re-analysis of archaeobotanical remains from pre- and early agricultural sites provides no evidence for a narrowing of the wild plant food spectrum during the origins of agriculture in southwest Asia.

July 2018:   Quinn Rise, Mutfords Farm, Hare Street, Hertfordshire. Watching Brief (OASIS ID: heritage1-245709)
In response to a planning condition on the redevelopment of land at Quinn Rise, Mutsfords Farm, Hare Street, Hertfordshire, SG6 0ED (Figure 1), the Heritage Network undertook a programme of archaeological monitoring on the development groundworks. The site is located immediately to the south of a medieval moated site and the 18th century listed farmhouse of 'Mutfords', within an Area of Archaeological Significance (AAS 56).The site forms a detached house within a private garden, with an adjoining garage and conservatory on the southern elevation, centred on TL 39962 28311.The proposed development entailed the demolition and replacement of the existing single storey extension to the house, with a garage and associated services. The results of the monitoring demonstrated a solid geological sequence consisting of topsoil, over subsoil, over natural.

July 2018:   Church of St. Thomas à Becket, Northaw, Hertfordshire. Watching Brief. (OASIS ID: heritage1-280166)
The Heritage Network was commissioned by Northaw and Cuffley PCC, to undertake an archaeological watching brief on the works to investigate the causes of cracks in the fabric at the west end of the present Church of St Thomas à Becket, Northaw, Herts. A Heritage Statement (Ashworth 2016) and a ground penetrating radar survey (Udyrysz 2016) indicated that foundations to the two earlier structures on the site are likely to have survived within and around the footprint to existing building, particularly at its western end. As part of the investigative works four small test pits were excavated close to the exterior walls at the west end of the church (Figure 2). All of the test pits were hand dug. The test pits revealed no clear evidence for the remains of the two previous churches on the site.

July 2018:   The Green Man Public House, Arlesey Road, Ickleford, Hertfordshire. Field evaluation (OASIS ID: heritage1-246596)
In response to a planning condition on the redevelopment of land at the former Green Man Public House, Ickleford, Hertfordshire, the Heritage Network was commissioned by the developers to undertake a programme of archaeological investigation. A desk-based assessment of the site revealed that the earliest known reference to the Green Man was in 1788. A smithy was attached to the pub by the mid 19th century. The original building was demolished and rebuilt slightly closer to the road in 1970-71. Cartographic evidence has demonstrated that the car park remained undeveloped from at least the mid 18th century until the later 20th century.

July 2018:   Country Boarding Kennels, Slip End, Baldock, Hertfordshire. Trial Trenching (OASIS ID: heritage1-257694)
In order to investigate the archaeological potential of a proposed development on land at Country Boarding Kennels, Slip End, Baldock, SG7 6SF, Hertfordshire, the Heritage Network was commissioned to undertake a field evaluation by trial trenching. Nine trenches were excavated across the site. Two of the trenches were located inside the kennels compound; and seven of the trenches were located in the large triangular field used for dog walking and training. No archaeological features or deposits were revealed in the nine trenches and no finds were recovered. On the basis of the results of the evaluation, the risk that the proposed development might have a negative impact on remains of archaeological significance may be considered to be Low for all periods.

July 2018:   34 Watton Road, Ware, Hertfordshire. Watching Brief (OASIS ID: heritage1-293016)
In response to a condition on the planning consent for construction of a side extension at 34 Watton Road, Ware, Hertfordshire, the Heritage Network was commissioned by the owner to undertake a programme of archaeological monitoring of the development groundworks. The foundation trenches were excavated by hand.
