Introduction

The following archive details the results of archaeological fieldwork at Winterbrook, Wallingford, Oxfordshire (centred on NGR SU 602 883). The fieldwork was undertaken by Birmingham University Field Archaeology Unit (BUFAU) during January 1998 and was commissioned by CPM on behalf of Wates Built Homes. The work consisted of systematic fieldwalking and surface collection of artefacts from the ploughsoil.

The main area of archaeological interest identified as a result of the surface collection is the distinct concentration of flint across the eastern side of the field, and in particular the south-eastern corner. This concentration includes almost all of the retouched pieces and cores from the assemblage and appears to correspond to the cropmark and geophysical plots previously identified. One of the ridges of higher ground also occurs in the south-eastern corner, although it is not known to what extent this may be related to the flint concentration. It is clear that the only artefact group showing any significant distribution pattern is the flint. The other categories are either too small (e.g. Prehistoric pottery) or too uniformly distributed (e.g. Post-medieval tile) to be of any significance.
