Two postholes contained possible Neolithic pottery. Several other features were dated to the Iron Age, including ditches forming three sides of an enclosure visible in the geophysical survey. Within the area of this potential enclosure were...

A historic building recording was undertaken by 110 Archaeology at Wellingborough Grange. Scant firmly datable features before the Mid and late C19 building programmes suggest a long period of growth and the inevitable loss of fabric with each new rebuild and old furnishings were replaced and roofs were rebuilt with iron frames and clad with corrugated-sheets. Reused material supporting evidence elsewhere is informative. it is possible to glean information from the stonework despite ribbon-pointing on the house and barns.

February 2021: Middle Bronze Age and Roman field systems: Excavations at Monks Farm (Phase 2), Grove, Oxfordshire (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-411020) (Archive released)
A second phase of excavation at Monks Farm, Grove, has revealed continuations of the middle Bronze Age field system partially exposed in the earlier excavation, and parts of a Roman field system. The middle Bronze Age features include a continuation of the trackway revealed in Phase 1 and a related series of rectilinear field boundaries. A penannular gully appears to have been a focus of middle Bronze Age occupation. The Roman field system contains an unusual field containing a series of closely set parallel gullies. Whilst this arrangement can be compared to 'lazybeds' perhaps used el...

January 2021: Dover Urban Archaeological Database Project (Archive released)
The Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England (now Historic England) developed its 'Urban Archaeological Database' programme in the 1990s. 35 of England's historic towns were identified as needing enhanced baseline datasets of archaeological information, of a comprehensiveness and detail that was beyond that which Historic Environment Records (HERs) can usually provide. These enhanced datasets were termed 'Urban Archaeological Databases' (UADs). Dover was one of the towns identified as requiring a UAD. Urban deposits are often highly complex, representing many phases and perio...
January 2021: Batford Mill, Lower Luton Road, Harpenden, St Albans, Hertfordshire. Archaeological Evaluation (OASIS ID: drparcha1-396914) (Archive released)
A pre-determination evaluation on a historic watermill site on the River Lea was undertaken by DRP Archaeology in June 2020 in order to better inform the archaeological advisor ahead of a planning decision. A previous Heritage Statement was produced, but could not provide enough information of survival of potential heritage assets. The site dates to least the Medieval period, but is potentially Anglo-Saxon in origin. The current site is industrial and concreted over with the watermill having gone out of use in the 1950s. The evaluation was in the open yard area targeting evidence for earlie...
January 2021: Folly Bridge, Arch 4, Oxford. Watching Brief (OASIS ID: oxfordar1-336245) (Archive released)
A watching brief on the Grade II listed Folly Bridge, Arch 4, was commissioned by Oxfordshire County Council ahead of repairs. Three previously unknown walls were found within the fill of the bridge, constructed on the bridge vaults. No finds were recovered during the works, although the position of the walls suggests that they were related to the horse-tram system in use between 1887-1914. The features may have been built in order to consolidate the ground directly beneath the tracks. No features pre-dating the 19th-century were found.

January 2021: Chesterton Farm Foul Water Pipeline, Hills Quarry Route, Siddington, Gloucestershire. Magnetometer Survey (OASIS ID: archaeol20-409203) (Archive released)
A geophysical survey, comprising detailed magnetometry, was carried out by Archaeological Surveys Ltd at the request of Cotswold Archaeology. The survey was undertaken along a 3.7km long corridor outlined for a new sewer pipe between Cirencester and the sewage treatment works near South Cerney. The results indicate the presence of quarrying within two areas in the northern part of the corridor which along with nearby pit-like anomalies, could be of archaeological potential. Evidence for more recent quarrying is also evident in the southern part of the pipeline route. Throughout the survey corr...
January 2021: Agricultural building consented for demolition at Chirwyn, Chyreen Lane, Quenchwell, Carnon Downs. Building Recording (OASIS ID: statemen1-408036) (Archive released)
