Abstract

Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by Lady Georgina Bowman-Shaw to undertake an archaeological evaluation at Goose Farm, Fritwell, Oxfordshire (centred on NGR SP 52450 29190). The work was undertaken to inform a proposed development for the formation of a pond and woodland planting area to aid in the enhancement of local ecology and biodiversity. The site was considered to have moderate archaeological potential as it is located just to the south of the 12th century St Olaves church and within an area where prehistoric and medieval features have been previously identified. Four trenches were undertaken over one week in early July 2014. The trenches were excavated to the top of the natural limestone and revealed topsoil, subsoil, and recent demolition rubble containing asbestos in the area of the proposed pond. No archaeological features or deposits were uncovered and no finds were recovered. Therefore based on the results of the evaluation the archaeological potential of the proposed site is considered to be low.
