Introduction

Lime Road, Botley, Oxfordshire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-314268)

In March 2013, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation at Lime Road, Botley, Oxford on behalf of Bovis Homes (SW) Ltd. The evaluation comprised the machine excavation of 16 trenches measuring 30m by 1.8m. Of the 16 trenches, 13 contained no archaeological features or deposits. An undated ditch was identified along the eastern edge of the site in Trench 6 and a pit containing burnt flint was found in Trench 13 in the southern corner. A buried soil horizon containing medieval pottery and animal bone was also recorded in the southern corner, in Trench 9. The results of the evaluation indicate that a very low level of archaeological activity exists at the site.
