Bell, Christopher (1994) Sansom's Ford, Standlake, Oxfordshire. Project Report. Oxford Archaeological Unit Ltd. (Unpublished)




In Septernber 1994 The oxford Archaeological Unit undertook a field evaluation of the land adjacent to Sansom's Ford, Standlake, Oxfordshire. The work was carried out for Drinkwater Sabey Ltd on behalf of Sands and Gravels (Standlake) Ltd in connection with a proposal for gravel extraction. Forty-four trial trenches were positioned and excavated according to specifcations agreed with Oxfordshire Archaeological Servìces. Only a small number of archaeological features were found within the application area. The features that were located consisted mostly of ditches, and these were almost certainly related to field boundaries or drainage. The north edge of a large palaeochannel was located in the SW corner of the site. A small number of flints flakes, possibly dating from the Mesolithic period, were found in an old ground surface on the norlh side of the channel, but no features were located in this area.
