Abstract:
Excavations at the British Gas and Penlon sites on the northern outskirts of the historic core of Abingdon have revealed a sequence of activity dating from the Middle Bronze Age to the Civil War. Minimal evidence was found for prehistoric settlement including pits, ditches, and a penannular gully. This was followed by the burial of human remains during the Roman period, which suggests that the area may have been on the western edge of a larger cemetery complex. Activity was most intense during the medieval period, and principally comprised rubbish/quarry pits and probable tenement boundaries. In comparison, post-medieval activity was relatively limited, with a stone-built structure and hearths being the only features present. During the Civil War the development area was the location of part of the town's defences, as represented by three large ditches. Appendices and separately authored contributions include
