Abstract

In March 2002 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological brief at the Pheasants, Easton, Winchester, Hampshire (NGR SU 5163 3229). The work was commissioned by Antler Homes Wessex Ltd in advance of residential development. The watching brief revealed an undated wicker-lined well that produced wood fragments, seeds, herb and grassland remains. The well was not dated by artefacts but but had partly collapsed and was very fragile, suggesting it was of some antiquity. The well appeared to be cut into a former pond, likewise undated. The site had been extensively truncated when the former buildings on the site were constructed.
