Abstract

In October 2009 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation at Pincents Hill, Tilehurst, Reading instructed by CgMs Consulting on behalf of Blue Living Ltd. The evaluation consisted of 29 trenches. Twenty-six of the trenches were situated in the Kennet Valley and three were located in a horse paddock off Pincents Lane on the northern edge of the Valley. The trenches located in the paddock revealed eight linear features, three of which produced dating evidence; at least six are thought to date to the Roman period. A post-medieval field boundary was revealed in two trenches situated at the eastern end of the site. Heavy truncation of the natural horizon was noted over a significant area within the valley associated with the creation of the golf course and recreation ground (no other archaeological features were found).
