Abstract

On the 17th and 18th November 2015 Oxford Archaeology carried out a trial trench evaluation on behalf of Corylus Environmental Limited, comprising six trenches at Land to the North of Leighton Road, Wingrave, Buckinghamshire. The trenches confirmed the results of a preceding geophysical survey, indicating that the area has limited archaeological potential. Archaeological evidence was confined to the northern part of the site, where a single undated pit and a ditch, possibly of late Iron Age or Roman date, were found. All trenches, except one, contained traces of 'ridge and furrow', which are plough-formed earthworks resulting from long-term medieval and post-medieval open field agriculture. The ridges survive as visible landscape features in the surrounding fields.
