Introduction

Bicester Village Phase 4, Bicester, Oxfordshire. Archaeological Watching Brief Report. (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-311209)

Between 31st August and 23rd September 2016, Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological watching brief, on behalf of Value Retail, on the footings and a service trench for a retail development at Bicester Village 4. Archaeological deposits were scarce, with a tree throw hole the only cut feature to be encountered. The deposits encountered were mainly truncated alluvial clays sealing a limestone natural. It was evident through the excavation of the footings that any potential archaeological remains would have been removed during the construction of the previous building, prior to the current phase of construction. No finds or environmental material were present.
