Introduction

South-West Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire (OASIS ID: cotswold2-315883)

The evaluation recorded numerous well-preserved, substantial archaeological features at the site. Relatively large quantities of pottery were recovered. There were four main areas of activity, which contained numerous enclosures and associated features. These spanned the Iron Age/Roman transitional period into the 4th century AD. Trenches excavated adjacent to the old line of the A421 (Standing Way) and Weasel Lane recorded no archaeological remains associated with these ancient routes, and there was no evidence for further burials associated with an Iron Age cemetery previously excavated at Bottle Dump Roundabout. There was a generally high concordance between the results of the evaluation results and a previous geophysical survey, although there were some discrepancies.
