Abstract

On the 1st of September 2009 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Stowe House, Stowe, Buckinghamshire (NGR SP 670 375). This work was commissioned by Purcell Miller Tritton acting on behalf of the Stowe House Preservation Trust in advance of the excavation of a temporary turning area on the edge of the south lawn adjacent to the house. The watching brief revealed a deposit of made ground associated with the 18th/19th-century construction of the parterre overlain by the present day topsoil and turf. No evidence for any earlier phases of the house or garden was observed.
