The Oxford Archaeological Unit (OAU) evaluated the archaeological potential of land on the west side of Roman Way within the Rover Group car works at Cowley, Oxford. Four trenches were excavated, Clear evidence for a change in the natural geology from limestone to sand was found in Trench 1. Roman and medieval ploughsoils were found in Trenches 1, 2 and 4. No archaeologically signifcant features were found. The possibility of finding Roman burials within the development area, especìalLy at its south end, cannot be ruled out.
