Abstract

Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by Location 3 Properties Limited to undertake archaeological trial trenching on land off Lupton Road, Wallingford, Oxfordshire. The work was undertaken in advance of determination of a planning application for commercial development at the site. This was an additional evaluation stage to an earlier phase that was completed in 2012 where only limited access was possible. The evaluation comprised the excavation of three trenches and was carried out in January 2020. This recorded shallow linear ditches and pits in all trenches. Artefactual evidence was entirely absent. The arrangement of linear features is suggestive of field boundaries or enclosures. The absence of artefacts and any obvious settlement-related features, such as postholes or penannular gullies, suggest that the site is located away from its contemporary areas of occupation.
