Abstract

Between 14th October 2004 and 26th November 2004 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at 10-11 Churchgate, Thatcham, Berkshire (NGR: SU 5167 6751). The work was commissioned by Wilding Butler Construction Ltd in advance of construction of 5 new dwellings. The watching brief revealed two post-medieval east-west running ditches, a possible medieval plough soil and two undated ditches pre-dating the plough soil which may therefore have been early medieval, Saxon or earlier in origin. The nature of the site suggests it may have suffered seasonal flooding or have been marshland and therefore marginal and unsuitable for settlement.
