Abstract

Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation at Manor Cottage and Temple Cottage, Temple Lane, Bisham, Berkshire on behalf of Lief Designs of Woodburn Common, Buckinghamshire. The evaluation revealed probable Neolithic activity at Temple Cottage in the form of a pit and and a tree throw hole back-filled with burnt flint. At Manor Cottage a range of features were found indicative of a middle to late Iron Age settlement, comprising pits, a ring-gully and a ditch. A sherd of Italian amphora retrieved froma pit may suggest that the settlement was of higher status than a simple farmstead.
