Between April and September 2005 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Kiln Farm, Blackthorn, Near Bicester, Oxfordshire (NGR: SP62021966). The work was commissioned by Hark Developments Ltd. in advance of demolition of an exisiting building, resuse of two barns and the construction of a new dwelling and garage. The watching brief revealed extensive ground reduction within the area of the old farm yard. After removal of the concrete farmyard surface a truncated layer of organically stained post-medieval soil overlying an earlier backfilled pond and deep depositis of alluvium/flood deposits was revealed. No depoits, features or artefacts relating to the Saxon or medieval riigins of the viallge were observed.
