Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out the excavation of a series of eleven test pits at Hill Farm, Little Wittenham on behalf of the Northmoor Trust. The work was carried out to reveal the extant building foundations in relation to the surrounding deposits, and to record any archaeological deposits encountered. The underlying geology in all of the pits was a weathered greensand. Cut into this within the garden south of the farm was a possible Saxon ditch. The ditch and the greensand were overlain by a layer of clay some 0.25 m deep, interpreted as a medieval or later ploughsoil. The building foundations were not very} substantial, bottoming on the surface of the greensand at a maximum depth of 0.5 m. Within the farm courtyard the possible ploughsoil was overlain by courtyard surfaces, and these were followed by farmyard deposits below the modern hardcore and concrete
