FAXR 10 Faringdon Coxwell Road_A1b.pdf



Between the 11th and the 22nd of September 2010, Oxford Archaeology undertook a programme of archaeological evaluation within a field west of Coxwell Road, Faringdon, on behalf of CgMs Consulting and Welbeck Land Limited. A total of forty trenches, each measuring 30m by 1.5m were excavated, equating to a two percent sample of the field. Of the forty trenches excavated, twenty-nine contained archaeological features. These included a group of linear features, pits and post-holes, concentrated in the north-western area of the field, some of which dated to the late Iron Age - early Roman period. Furrows of a probably medieval date were identified throughout the field but particularly towards its northern boundary. Post-medieval quarry pits were present in the south-western area of the field, and probable post-medieval ditches were seen adjacent to the field's eastern boundary. ©
