Abstract

Excavations in advance of urban development at Tadpole Garden Village, Blunsdon St Andrew, Swindon, investigated an area of 1.28 ha. Ditches forming part of an enclosure complex dated to the early/middle Iron Age were uncovered. The features are likely to have lain at the periphery of a settlement, although no evidence regarding the location of the presumed settlement was found, either during the excavation or the previous geophysical survey and trial trench evaluation. The site is on the Oxford Clay, a topographic location where Iron Age activity is almost entirely unrecorded, positioned between the better-understood Corallian Ridge to the south and the gravel terraces of the River Thames to the north
