Introduction

This collection comprises site records, images, CAD data, spreadsheets, and finds datasets from an archaeological excavation at a Late Iron Age/Early Roman enclosed settlement at Basing View, Basingstoke, undertaken by Oxford Archaeology between 2018 and 2022.

In 2018 Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council to undertake an archaeological excavation on the site of a proposed commercial development (planning reference: 17/03775/FUL). The excavation revealed the remains of an Early Roman enclosed settlement that possibly originated at the very end of the Iron Age. The site consisted of a rectilinear enclosure, a series of intercutting pit groups (possibly chalk quarrying), and numerous postholes representing several possible structures. Pottery from the site suggests that the enclosure was laid out in the first or second decade after the Roman conquest of AD 43. A sunken rectilinear feature, containing a neonate burial, in the northeast corner of the enclosure may be the remains of a small building. A very small number of features dating to the early 2nd century represent a final phase of activity before the site's abandonment. After this point, sporadic Late Roman finds suggest that local activity was focussed elsewhere.

Oxford Archaeology would like to thank Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council who commissioned and funded the fieldwork, post-excavation work and publication. Neil Adam, Planning Archaeologist for Hampshire County Council, is thanked for his work in setting the project brief and monitoring the fieldwork. The fieldwork was managed by John Boothroyd and directed on site by Robert McIntosh. The field team included Liberty Bennett, Elizabeth Kennard and Ben Slader, and the site was surveyed by Conan Parsons. Robert Knight and David Dungworth are thanked for their identifications of the iron sulphide nodule and the fayalitic slag fragments.
