Abstract

Between the 23rd and the 30th of June 2013, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation on land at Stockham Farm, Wantage, Oxfordshire on behalf of CgMs Consulting. The site is approximately 3.8 hectares in extent and the evaluation consisted of seventeen trenches each measuring 30m by 1.5m. The earliest archaeological evidence comprised two Bronze Age flint flakes recovered from the subsoil. A small cluster of features, including a possible waterhole, in the centre of the site may be of later prehistoric date but their function is uncertain. Occasional sherds of later Roman and medieval pottery were also recovered but the majority of the features recorded were undated and consisted of shallow ditches. It is thought likely that many of these may be the remnants of medieval ridge and furrow agriculture. A watching brief on geotechnical test pits on the site and on land adjacent to the site was also undertaken but no archaeological features were recorded.
