Abstract:
Reports an excavation near previous RB material, revealing activity from the late first-century AD to Early Saxon period. Field boundaries, a small second-century AD timber granary and rectangular ?domestic building were succeeded by and early fourth-century stone structure of square plan. Probably of more than one storey, the latter is thought to have been a tower granary. In the early Saxon period a number of ditched enclosures were dug on new alignments, and these were sealed by a dumped silt horizon which may relate to the creation of agricultural plots. The evidence for Roman settlement in Wantage is summarised, and it is concluded that the excavation probably lay to the rear of house-plots which fronted onto the Roman road to Frilford and Alchester. There are specialist reports on: `Coins' by Peter Guest (129--131 & 132--3); `Pottery' by Jane Timby (131 & 134--47) including a note on `The stamped and decorated samian' by Brenda Dickinson (137--8); `Fired-clay loomweights' by Jane Timby (147--8); `Metalwork'(148--51) and `Glass' (151--2) both by Linda Viner; `Stone objects' by Fiona Roe (152--4); `Flint' by Graeme Walker (154); `Building stone' by Fiona Roe (154); Tile, mortar, and wall plaster; `Animal bone' by Mark Maltby (155--63); `Molluscs of economic relevance' by Keith Wilkinson (163); `The local palaeoenvironment' by Jenni Heathcote, Chris Stevens, & Keith Wilkinson (163--71); Appendix 1 provides `Gazetteer entries plotted on Fig. 20' (177) and appendix 2 details `Micromorphology methodology sample description' by Jenni Heathcote (177--9).
