Abstract

Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological evaluation at Plock Court and Oxstalls Campus, University of Gloucestershire, comprising 18 trenches and 9 deep test pits in three separate areas. No evidence for Holocence prehistoric activity was encountered in any of the trenches. Six deep test pits were excavated through the Holocene alluvium infilling the brook, but no significant archaeological or palaeoenvironmental evidence was encountered. Evidence for Roman activity is surprisingly slight, given the proximity of the site to the Roman city of Glevum. Two ditches are likely to be of Roman date. Medieval and post-medieval features are more common, particularly in areas of former ridge-and-furrow, but are again consistent with agricultural land-use
