Abstract

The Oxford Archaeological Unit carried out a field evaluation at Nuffield Orthopaedic Hospital on behalf of ACE Centre. The evaluation test-pit aimed to identify a probable kiln shown on a magnetometer survey. The test-pit (1m x 1.5m x 0.95m in depth) directly above the magnetometer signal did not reveal a Roman Kiln site but rather a sequence of ploughsoils which contained eleven Iron Age and Romano British sherds. An iron rod and concrete rubble in the test-pit is likely to account for the strong magnetometer signal.
