Abstract:
[SP 4507]. Extensive excavations coupled with intensive biological analysis of all types have provided new evidence for the changing settlement patterns and land use of Iron Age and Roman settlements on the first gravel terrace and flood plain of the Thames Valley. After early Iron Age pits on the terrace, a complete break in pottery fabric and settlement pattern marked the middle Iron Age when three enclosed farmsteads were built on the floodplain and used a purely pastoral economy with flood-enriched grassland; biological evidence demonstrated the short life of each farmstead, not over five years, as well as the seasonality of occupation. In the 2nd century RB occupation the gravel terrace was enclosed to form a ?hedged field system, though pastoralism still dominated the economy and a scythe-blade suggests haymaking. Corn was probably brought in (corndrier) and box-hedged gardens were evident. In the medieval period open arable farming was practised and the floodplain retained for meadow.
