Abstract

The OAU undertook a watching brief during topsoil and subsoil stripping ut Rollright Quarry during August and September 1999, on behalf of Hanson Aggregates. The existing stone quarry here is to be extended. The watching brief was requsted by Oxfordshire County Archaeological Services because of known archaeological finds from the site, and its proximity to the megalithic complex of the Rollright Stones to the east. The finds were limited, perhaps due to previous stone quarrying here. Two naturally formed frost fractures/wedges and a single pit of Iron Age date were observed, together with another possible pit feature. Two quarty, holes of probable Victorian or 20th century date were also observed; the remainder of the deposits were modern.
