Onslow Park and Ride Guildford Surrey

Simmonds, Andrew Onslow Park and Ride Guildford Surrey. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




During April and May 2013 Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological excavation on behalf of Surrey County Council on the site of a new park and ride facility at Onslow, Guildford, Surrey. The investigation uncovered a pit and gully dating from the early Bronze Age and 94 pits that were attributed to the middle Bronze Age-early Iron Age. The last-mentioned features were arranged into two spatially distinct groups and were interpreted as the remains of ephemeral settlement activity. They were similar in character to groups of similarly dated features that had been discovered during previous excavations a short distance to the west, forming part of a landscape of prehistoric settlement. A single un-urned cremation burial was also excavated and was assumed to be contemporary with the other features. This document describes the results of the excavation and makes recommendations for further work and publication.
