Abstract

An assessment of the archaeological remains in an area which became part of Scheduled Monument Oxon 141 in November 1985 at Northmoor, Oxfordshire, was carried out in the context of an application for mineral extraction on behalf of ARC Ltd. The scheduled site is part of a major coherent block of cropmarks mainly of Iron Age and Roman date. The main area of settlement extends further west than indicated by cropmarks. beyond this area are extensive but fairly sparse remains of ditches associated with a field system, including 4 double ditched boundaries. There is some waterlogged preservation. Superficial stratigraphy has largely been destroyed by cultivation. In the discreet area of settlement finds are fairly numerous but otherwise very sparse, and in general are unexceptional in range and almost exclusively Roman in date.
