Between May 31st and June 2nd 2007, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief on land to the south of the Village of Oddington, Oxfordshire (NGR: SP 553-148). The work was commissioned by Scottish and Southern Energy Ltd in advance of excavation of a service trench for new underground power cables. The watching brief revealed 2 ditches running across the course of the trench. One of these was a probable Burgage plot boundary ditch located within the level area at the top of the field. The second was a probable enclosure ditch running along the base of the upper terrace of the field. A second lower terrace was of probable geological origin, marking the boundary between cornbrash and alluvial deposits.
