Abstract

In September and October 2014, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at St Mary's Church, Church Walk, Ambrosden, Oxfordshire (NGR: SP 6030 1941). The work was commissioned by PBA Designs on behalf of the Incumbent and Church Wardens and was carried out during the installation of a wheelchair accessible disabled WC extension and the digging of service trenches in the churchyard. Eighteen earth cut graves were revealed within the foot print of the WC extension and a further 28 were uncovered within the service trenches. From these, 44 skeletons (33 adults and 11 juveniles) were excavated. Iron coffin fittings and two lead coffins indicated that at least 21 of the burials were of post-medieval date. The remainder (25 burials) were possibly medieval. No archaeological remains of the earlier church were encountered
