This report describes the results of excavations around the ruined east end of St Mary's Church, Deerhurst, Glos. New evidence was found of the relationships between the structural components of the east end. Many burials were found both inside and outside the structures; some burial was shown to be earlier than the first definable stone structure. Other features may be associated with monastic buildings beyond the east end. Some Roman pottery and building material was found in the excavation, and also Saxon worked stone, including a fragment of a wheel-cross head. A radiocarbon date centring in the late 7th century was obtained from an extra-mural feature.
A preliminary account is also given of new finds and features in other parts of the church complex. These include a 12th century sculpture re-used in the belfry stage of the tower, other Saxon and medieval worked stone in local buildings, a survey of the graveyard, and fieldwork in the village and parish. The bulldozing of earthworks near Odda's Chapel was observed; a little Roman material was found, and structures located which may be Roman tile kilns.
