Abstract

In March 2009 Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological evaluation and geotechnical exercise at Abingdon Museum, Abingdon, in advance of a planning application for the construction of a new lift shaft and the lowering of the basement floor by 1 m. Undated pits or postholes were revealed within two testpits to the south of the museum. The pits/postholes were overlain by a sequence of metalled Roman road surfaces, and were most likely Iron Age in date. The bases of probable early Roman pits were observed within two testpits cut through the existing basement floor. Roman and medieval soil horizons overlay the deposits.
