Between 6th and 24th September 2010, Oxford Archaeology South (OAS) completed a programme of archaeological evaluation at Home Farm, Bicester on behalf of Hyder Consulting (UK) Ltd. A total of 70 trenches measuring 50 m x 2 m were excavated accounting for 4% of the 21 ha site. Only six trenches contained features worthy of further investigation. These features were all linear and varied in orientation and dimensions. The features were recorded and interpreted as possible agricultural ditches, but with the caveat that they were ambiguous and could equally be natural features. The fills of the excavated features bore a marked resemblance in colour, composition and compaction to the natural geology observed in low-lying areas of the site, and towards the southern limit of the site. No finds were recovered. The results suggest that the exemplar site lies in an area devoid of significant archaeological activity. ©
