Abstract:
Reports evaluation and excavation in advance of development that revealed previously unrecorded LIA and RB settlement remains within the floodplain of Langford Brook. The archaeological features and deposits, which were well-preserved beneath post-Roman alluvium, can be interpreted as two phases of activity, defined on the basis of stratigraphic relationships and the pottery dating. Phase 1 is dated to c. AD20/30--60/70 and Phase 2 to c. AD60/70--100/120. This low-status rural site is typical of the Upper Thames region in the LIA and early RB period, when increasing agricultural intensification required the utilisation of previously marginal land. There are reports on the: `Flint' by Lynne Bevan (75); `Pottery and other ceramic finds' by Paul Booth (75--88); tile and fired clay; `The coins, small finds and metalwork' by Lynne Bevan (89--90); lead and iron nails; `Animal bones by Stephanie Pinter-Bellows (93--5); and `The environmental evidence' by Rebecca Roseff (96--105) including details of the soil analysis, `Mollusca' (99--102) and `Pollen' (102) both by Andrew Moss, `Mollusca' evidence drawn from the processing of charred plant remains, by Eleanor Ramsey (102), and `Charred plant remains' by Elizabeth Pearson (102--5).
