Abstract

During January 2013 Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological excavation at the Bicester Village retail outlet in an area where a new coach park was to be constructed. It was anticipated that the excavation would find evidence of the late Iron Age-early Roman settlement located to the south of the site or of the Saxon settlement to the north. Instead the excavation uncovered a group of tree-throw holes containing a significant assemblage of late Mesolithic flintwork, a possible ditched enclosure of Bronze Age date and two early-middle Iron Age pits. The absence of Saxon material indicates that the southern limit of occupation associated with the late Saxon minster and lay settlement, from which Bicester originated, must lie somewhere north of this site
