Abstract

Between December 2012 and June 2013 Oxford Archaeology conducted an archaeological recording action during the construction of the new Silverstone University Training College on the Silverstone Racing Circuit, Buckinghamshire (centred at NGR: SP 6763 4286). The recording action observed features associated with the former WWII airfield such as perimeter tracks and recorded significant areas of truncation and deposits of made ground which are also probably associated with the construction of the airfield. Later conversion of the airfield into the racing circuit had also resulted in the truncation of some areas. No evidence for activity pre-dating the 20th century, either in the form of features or residual finds, was encountered during the course of the recording action, although it is unclear if this was due to the level of truncation observed, the extent of made ground, or to the absence of recordable activity.
