Abstract

OA carried out a field evaluation on land at Osney Mead Industrial Estate in April 2002. Three evaluation trenches were excavated. A series of alluvial layers overlying the natural gravel were recorded and evidence for palaeochannels was observed. A stone surface or platform of uncertain date was revealed in a trench in the south-west corner of the site. This may be part of a riverbank hardstanding surface or possibly a ford or causeway across an older course of the Bulstake stream.
