Full text not available from this repository.


Excavation by Oxford Archaeology on the southern outskirts of Marlborough uncovered a probable early Neolithic pit, a late Neolithic pit that contained a deposit of worked flint and Grooved Ware pottery, and part of a middle Iron Age settlement. The settlement evidence comprised eight substantial storage pits, two of which had possible deliberately-placed deposits at the base. A pair of parallel ditches were not well dated but may have enclosed the settlement or, perhaps more likely, defined a trackway leading to a Roman villa that has been identified from cropmark evidence in the field to the south. A Roman coin was recovered from the topsoil and some undated human remains were found nearby by a member of the public.
