Abstract

Three excavation areas were investigated in advance of a housing development at the east end of the village of Chalgrove, South Oxfordshire. A Middle Iron Age settlement comprising a sequence of roundhouse gullies and one or more posthole structures of uncertain form was uncovered in The northern Area A, as well as two curvilinear enclosures closer to the Chalgrove Brook in Area B. Area C revealed a pair of converging trackways adjoined by rectilinear enclosures, which were constructed during the second half of the 1st century and passed out of use early in the 2nd century. The principal feature in Area B was part of a rectilinear enclosure that was attributed to the late Roman period, but not enough of the enclosure was exposed within the development area to establish the character of any internal activity. No evidence was found that could be directly associated with the late Roman copper alloy bowl that had been found at the south-west corner of the field by a metal detectorist in 2011, or with the two 3rd-century coin hoards for which Chalgrove is noted.
