Abstract:
The Upper Thames Valley has one of the highest concentrations of cursuses in Britain. In the 1980s the Oxford Archaeological Unit along with the Abingdon Area Archaeological and Historical Society had the opportunity to investigate one of these sites at Drayton. This site has produced significant results for understanding of the date, construction and use of cursus monuments on the lowland river gravels of Britain. The volume reports on the excavations at Drayton, and includes an account of small-scale excavations undertaken at the Lechlade cursus by OAU and Lance and Faith Vatcher. It also includes specialist reports on the worked flint, stone axe, utilised stone, pottery (Neolithic through to Anglo-Saxon), fired clay, tiles and other finds, animal bone, palaeo-environmental studies, radiocarbon determinations, archaeomagnetic dating, tree-throw hole stratigraphy, labour requirements for construction of the Drayton North cursus, supporting environmental data, and a gazetteer of known cursus and related monuments in the Upper Thames Valley.
