Abstract

'Excavation by Oxford Archaeology at Little Martin’s Field, Brightwell-cum-Sotwell, Oxfordshire, uncovered two middle Bronze-Age Deverel-Rimbury urns that had been buried in purpose-dug pits. The vessels contained no human remains but analogy with contemporary cremation burials and with similar features found within cremation cemeteries elsewhere suggests that they may represent cenotaphs or other deposits associated with funerary rites. Part of a middle Iron-Age settlement was uncovered, comprising two possible roundhouse locations, a ditched enclosure and associated pits and postholes. A boundary ditch with several recuts was attributed to the Roman and/or Anglo-Saxon period. A report on the excavation will be published in the 2020 volume of the county journal, Oxoniensia.'
