Polar Technology, Eynsham Geotechnical Test Pits

Boothroyd, John Polar Technology, Eynsham Geotechnical Test Pits. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




Oxford Archaeology were commissioned by Polar Technology Management Group to monitor the excavation of geotechnical test pits in advance of the construction of proposed manufacturing buildings and an associated access route. The southern portion of the site falls within the boundary of a Scheduled Ancient Monument, and the current work fell beyond the scheduled area. A previous archaeological trial trench evaluation identified remains dating from the Neolithic to Anglo-Saxon periods, both within, and continuing beyond the limits of the scheduled area. Three test pits situated along the route of a former railway line were monitored in January 2016. The test pits identified no archaeological deposits and demonstrated that the underlying geology had been truncated by the construction of both a former railway line and the current 20th century buildings.
