Heistermann, Christof and Norton, Andrew (2011) Electricity Substation and Cable Trenching, University Parks, Oxford. Project Report. Oxford Archaeological Unit Ltd. (Unpublished)




Between March and September 2010 Oxford Archaeology (South) undertook an archaeological investigation at Oxford University Parks, Oxford, on behalf of Oxford University Estates Directorate and Scottish & Southern Energy Plc. The work comprised an archaeological watching brief during the trenching for HV and IT ducts, and a small-scale archaeological excavation in advance of an extension to the existing electricity sub-station. A Neolithic pit, part of a possible barrow ditch, Roman ditches and pits, and late medieval and/or post-medieval boundary ditches were recorded. The Neolithic pit may have been contemporary with a nearby barrow and the Roman and later features formed part of an agricultural landscape
