Abstract:
Survey and excavation in advance of the construction of the M40 revealed a multi-period site with the most intensive occupation in the MIA. The earlier prehistoric period is represented by flints, pottery, and a 14C date but the earliest structural traces date to the LBA. The first major feature was a linear boundary ditch, perhaps of LBA date. This was followed by a MIA-LIA enclosure containing two hut circles and a penannular gully. The latest feature, a working hollow in the top of the fills of the enclosure ditch, was probably in use at some time between about 200~BC and AD~50. Roman sherds, medieval sherds, and ridge and furrow reflect the final, agricultural use of the site. Finds included both hand-made and wheel-thrown pottery, flint, daub, a currency bar, and an awl.There are reports on `Pottery' by Deborah Ford & Ann Woodward (13-19), the `Iron currency bar' by Stephen Cracknell (19-20), the `Copper alloy awl' by John Pickin (20), `Stone' by Stephen Cracknell (20-1), `Flint' by John Pickin (21-2), and `Charred plant remains' by Lisa Moffett (22-5).
