Introduction

Muswell Hill Manor, Brill, Piddington, Oxfordshire. Archaeological Watching Brief  and Evaluation (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-204224)

During April and May 2014 Oxford Archaeology undertook a watching brief on the construction of a new drive, garage and turning area at Muswell Hill Manor, Brill, Piddington, Oxfordshire. Additionally an evaluation trench was excavated to try to date the ditch surrounding a large rectangular enclosure known as 'The Wilderness'. The watching brief uncovered a ditch of medieval date, presumed to be a former field boundary, and a buried garden soil that could date to the 15th or 16th century. Tile fragments recovered from the ditch surrounding the Wilderness also dated to the 15th or 16th century, and may indicate that the enclosure was originally constructed as a garden feature.
