Land North of Summertown East Hanney, Oxfordshire

Allen, Martyn Land North of Summertown East Hanney, Oxfordshire. [Client Report] (Unpublished)




Between the 16th and 19th January 2017 Oxford Archaeology (OA) undertook a trial trench evaluation on the site of a proposed housing development. The development area is approximately 2.56ha in extent and is located to the north of Summertown Road in East Hanney, Oxfordshire (NGR SU 41600 92600). The evaluation was carried out in wet conditions and the trial trenches flooded soon after excavation. Fortunately, all features were recorded and planned before flooding became a problem. Eleven trial trenches were excavated in total across the development area. Only one trench contained remains of archaeological interest. Trench 9, located in the south-western corner of the site, contained a single ditch section. A worked, prehistoric flint was recovered from the main fill of the ditch. The find appears to be Bronze Age in date, though no other finds were found to confirm the date of the feature. In other trenches, only modern intrusions were encountered.
