McIntosh, Robert Land East of Park Road, Didcot, Oxfordshire. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




Between the 23rd and 25th May 2017, Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological evaluation on the site of a proposed housing development at Land East of Park Road, Didcot, Oxfordshire for Environmental Dimension Partnership (EDP) on behalf of Catesby Estates Ltd. The evaluation comprised seven trenches and uncovered total of three ditches, three postholes and a feature interpreted as a possible tree-throw hole. The main focus of features, comprising the postholes and two of the ditches, were located in Trench 2, in the north-eastern part of the evaluation area. One of the ditches was dated by ceramic evidence to the Roman period and the other to the late Iron Age/early Roman period. Only one of the postholes was excavated, but produced no dating evidence. The paucity of artefactual material suggests that the features are likely to be situated away from, or on the periphery of, any associated settlement.
