Abstract

Between the 21st April and 2nd May 2007, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at St Mary the Virgin Church, Kirtlington (NGR SP 500 196). The work was commissioned by Acanthus Clews Architects on behalf of the Incumbent and Church Wardens in advance of the excavation of approximately 25 m of service trench north and west of the church. The watching brief revealed 37 inhumations aligned west- east including one in a coffin, the fittings for 2 further coffins and a quantity of charnel. Little dating evidence was recovered from these burials, although the few coffin fittings retrieved were 18-19th century in date. No evidence for earlier church structures was observed during the course of the watching brief.
