Introduction

Land to the rear of 90 East Street, Olney, Milton Keynes. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-293913)

In December 2016, Cotswold Archaeology carried out an archaeological evaluation at land to the rear of 90 East Street, Olney, Milton Keynes. The work was carried out to inform a planning application for the residential development of the site. The fieldwork comprised the excavation of four trenches. The Buckinghamshire Historic Environment Record records no known heritage assets within the proposed development site.

Archaeological interest in the site is derived from its proximity to known Roman settlement and its location on the eastern edge of the village of Olney, which has its origins in the Saxon period and its. Undated plough furrows, of probable medieval date, representing the remains of the open field system that once surrounded the village of Olney, were encountered across the majority of the site. In addition, the evaluation also recorded an undated ditch.
