Abstract:
John Moore Heritage Services carried out an archaeological field evaluation at land west of Reading Road in Cholsey, Oxfordshire. Five machine-dug trenches with a total length of 90m were excavated across the site. Trenches 2 and 3 were targeted across areas of proposed substation building, equipment area, hard standing vehicle turning area and access. Trenches 1, 4, and 5 were placed across the areas of new planting (Fig. 1). The aims of investigation were to establish if features relating to the prehistoric and Roman landscapes are present on this site. During the fieldwork only one archaeological feature, linear ditch 4/11 was discovered in Trench 4. No finds were obtained from the ditch; however based on stratigraphic relationships it may possibly be of prehistoric date. Additional features investigated in Trench 4 were identified as natural features interpreted as tree throw holes and root or animal activities. Those features as well as ditch 4/11 were sealed by a thick alluvial deposit and lies c. 1.20m below present ground surface. Alluvial deposit was overlaid by two more layers, which represent a post-medieval cultivation layer and modern topsoil. The rest of the trenches were blank. In conclusion at least one archaeological features of significance is present on site and lies beneath an alluvial deposit below the impact level of cable runs and roadway, which should not be greater than 0.75m below existing.
