Abstract:
Excavations at Manor Farm, Drayton, revealed a series of intercutting boundary features, possibly focussing on a large hollow of indeterminate function. The earliest features were a gully and possible waterhole of Middle or Late Bronze Age date. These were overlain by a series of small gullies of early Roman date. Some early Anglo-Saxon features were present, but most activity belonged to the Late Saxon/early medieval period, and comprised a series of boundary ditches forming enclosures containing postholes. The artefactual assemblage included pottery from all periods, and an unusual Late Saxon strap-end. Environmental remains included evidence for early, pre-Norman cultivation of tetraploid wheat and fodder vetch. The excavations offered the opportunity to see evidence for the earliest stages of the development of a south Oxfordshire village. Specialist reports include
