Abstract

In February 2017 Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by Pegasus Planning Group on behalf Gladman Developments to undertake an archaeological evaluation of land off Peppard Road, Emmer Green, Oxford. The site is a proposed new housing development, centred on NGR SU 72350 77770 and lying at c 90m OD. The works involved the excavation of an initial fifteen 50m x 2m trenches. A further five trenches were subsequently excavated as a contingency allocation to investigate the extent of remains revealed in the initial trenching. The work took place over eight days from 20th February to 1st March 2017. The results of the evaluation confirmed the presence of prehistoric activity at a low density across the area and the presence of a probable Roman farmstead focused on the central and eastern areas. The farmstead was represented by boundary ditches, pits, two ovens/kilns and a possible cremation burial. No certain evidence was discovered for buildings, although a single possible wall footing was identified
