Abstract:
John Moore Heritage Services carried out an archaeological field evaluation at land south of The Street in Crowmarsh Gifford, Oxfordshire. Four machine-dug trenches with a total length of approximately 80m were excavated across the proposed access road north of The Street and the floodplain compensation area south of The Street (Fig. 1). The aims of investigation were to establish if features related to the defensive bridgehead of Wallingford Bridge or the Siege Castle were present within the proposed development area. Trench 1 was located in Riverside Park and showed a series of levelling deposits containing rubble formed of 19th/early 20th century building material. Based on available historic maps the levelling of this area took place in 1960s. Pre-1968 Ordnance Survey maps shows a river channel in the area where Trench 1 was located, which is thought to be the remains of the Saxon and Medieval defensive bridgehead for the town. However, no clear profile of a possible defensive ditch or any finds dated to medieval period were recorded during the field evaluation. Trenches 2, 3 and 4 located south of The Street were blank from an archaeological point of view.
