Abstract

Work in advance of property development by Oxford Archaeology (OA) on behalf of Try Homes Ltd., at Glyn House, Ewell, Surrey allowed the excavation of prehistoric, roman and post-medieval remains. Activity of Mesolithic date was identified by the presence of residual mircoliths. Two ring-ditches and a tree throw hole in the SE corner of the site indicated an area of early Bronze Age or late Neolithic activity. Lying to the NW of the late Neolithic / early Bronze Age activity was evidence of Roman settlement, including a dense band of intercutting pits, part of a post-built structure and several deep pits, possibly well shafts. Overlying the Roman settlement was a Post-Medieval structure which may have been the remains of the rectory and a number of gar5den features.
