Abstract:
In March 2013 the Contracts and Field Services Section of the Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust carried out an archaeological watching brief during the initial works for a new all-weather sports pitch located at the school playing fields, Maes-y-Llan, on the outskirts of Oswestry in Shropshire. The work was undertaken on behalf of Oswestry School, Upper Brook Street. A number of linear features of 13th/14th-century origin were identified, together with upstanding earthworks in the form of a lynchet and holloway. It has been assumed that the features are in some way contemporary with the dwellings and the associated field systems that had been noted in previous archaeological work undertaken by Shropshire Archaeological Services (Hannaford 1993). No artefactual remains were recovered during the watching brief. Consequently there is no further evidence to qualify the area as the possible site of the battle of Maeserfleth, fought in 642 between Oswald, the Christian King of Northumbria, and Penda, the pagan ruler of Mercia.
