Abstract

In January 2007, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation in the Italian Garden of Dropmore House in Burnham, Buckinghamshire (NGR SU 9248 8611). The work was commissioned by property owners Corporate Estates Ltd., through their archaeological consultant Gifford, who advise on the future management of the site. The eight-trench evaluation revealed a selection of features associated with the Italian Garden, including tree and plant holes, flower beds, drains, paths, and investigated the construction of an existing fountain feature. This was followed by a watching brief recording exercise along the eastern edge of the garden which revealed the foundations and planting trenches of a greenhouse and associated cold frames. All of the features and structures date to the 19th/20th century; no archaeology of earlier date was identified.
