Abstract

In March 2015, Oxford Archaeology completed a watching brief during the burial of electric supply cables along the northern edge of Hungerford Common, east of Hungerford and south of the Kennet and Avon canal in Berkshire. The majority of the watching brief observed deposits consistent with heathland soils forming part of Hungerford Common. A deeper soil profile observed at the western end of the scheme may suggest an agricultural/ploughsoil origin. This may be associated with the north-south aligned banks and terraces identified as part of the Berkshire National Mapping Programme within the northwest corner of Hungerford Common.
