Abstract

In August and September 2019 Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by Pegasus Group on behalf of Kingacre Estates Ltd to carry out a trial trench archaeological evaluation of the site of a proposed urban extension at Land South of Wokingham. Previous archaeological work in the general area had revealed low level and dispersed evidence of prehistoric, Roman and postmedieval agricultural activity. The evaluation confirmed the results of previous archaeological investigations in the locality, revealing infilled field boundaries or an absence of archaeological features across much of the site. There were two exceptions to this trend. Trenches 33, 35 and 36 contained a number of ditches on different alignments to the surrounding field systems but produced no finds and remain undated. Trenches 94, 97, 98, 101 and 102 contained a dispersed mix of ditches, pits and postholes indicating the presence of low-density settlement activity
