Introduction

24 Rissington Road, Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire. Archaeological Excavation (OASIS ID: cotswold2-297911)

An archaeological excavation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology in October 2017 on land at Rissington Road, Bourton-on-the-Water, Gloucestershire.

Two residual worked flint flakes, only broadly datable to the prehistoric period, were recovered from the fill of a ditch identified in the south-western half of the stripped area. No features or deposits of definite prehistoric date were identified during the current works.

Part of a curving ditch/gully, containing a single sherd of pottery of broad Roman date, was identified in the north-western part of the stripped area. The function of this feature remains unclear; however it may represent part of a foundation trench or drip gully for a circular or semi-circular structure. A further ditch, also containing a single sherd of pottery of broad Roman date, was partially exposed in the north-eastern part of the stripped area and may represent part of a sub-square or sub-rectangular enclosure.

A ditch, identified by a preceding archaeological evaluation, was identified in the south-western half of the stripped area and contained pottery of 2nd to 4th-century AD date along with a fragment of box flue tile and a fragment of worked stone.
