Thames Bank, Goring, Oxon

Johns, Rob (1998) Thames Bank, Goring, Oxon. Project Report. Oxford Archaeological Unit Ltd. (Unpublished)




The Oxford Archaeological Unit undertook a field evaluation at Thames Bunk, Goring on behalf of Beechcroft Developments Ltd on the 26th and 27th of February 1998. The evaluation revealed that the site was extensively landscaped prior to, and possibly in association with, the construction of the present building, now partially demolished. The footings of the building were found to be constructed directly on top of the natural chalk, and the ground level had subsequently been made up to a height of some l.4m above the natural chalk. To the south of the site a thin layer of sand was encountered, surviving beneath the made ground deposits. A ditch, aligned approximately east -west cut front the top of the sand, was dated by a single sherd of pottery to the Early or Middle Saxon period.
