Abstract

The Oxford Archaeological Unit carried, out a field evaluation at St. Mary's church, Hurley, Berhshire on behalf of the church. The site lies within the Scheduled. Ancient Monument of Hurley Príory and, Ladye Place Manor. The eualuation revealed important stratified archaeological deposits which span from the 12th to the 19th centuries. The earliest feature discovered was a large early medieval ditch, which was overlain by a thick medieval dump layer. A late medieval mortar floor was then laid down and again was sealed by a further possibly post-dissolution dump. Four post-medieval rubble built foundations, possibly for boundøríes or outbuildings in the grounds of the Ladye Place Manor, were then constructed, and after their demolition and clearance a final dump sealed the site prior to the formation of a thick garden soil.
