Abstract:
Report on an excavation and watching brief carried out at Aspreys, Olney, which revealed a pit alignment dating to the Early Iron Age. Environmental evidence indicates that the pits had been left to fill gradually within a largely open landscape. The silting deposits from the pits suggest that the alignment was not flanked by an earthwork bank. During the Middle Iron Age, one of the pits -- by then just a shallow hollow -- was selected for the interment of a crouched inhumation burial. This burial provides an illustration of the long-term significance of pit alignments. Later activity was limited to medieval and post-medieval agriculture and quarrying. The concluding discussion considers the Olney pit alignment with reference to other similar monuments in the region. Separately authored contributions include
