Abstract

Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation at Toddington Nurseries, Littlehampton, West Sussex (NGR TQ 0352 0356) on behalf of Gifford and Partners Ltd. The evaluation revealed a possible Neolithic ditch to the north of the site, and several Bronze Age ditches and pits. The features were suggestive of localised Neolithic/early Bronze Age activity within the area, which later developed into a significant Bronze Age landscape. A Romano-British ditch was observed to the west of the site and a quantity of re-deposited Saxon pottery was recovered. A series of re-cut 12th or 13th-century boundary ditches were revealed that might have delineated the eastern edge of historic Toddington.
