Abstract

The Oxford Archaeological Unit carried out a watching brief at 102 Bayswater Road, Barton on behalf of Oxfordshire County Council. The occupant, MrSaunders, had discovered two bones while excavating his drive and had alerted the police. The bones were a human tibia and fibula which were identified by the police as more than 300 years old. The Oxford Archaeological Unit was notified by the County Archaeologist and a site visit was made. Fragments of two further human leg bones were recovered with more modern material from an old ploughsoil: there were no archaeological features. During further excavation Mr Saunders recovered more bone (animal). The County Archaeologist authorised the OAU to excavate the rest of the drive. Roman pottery was found but there were no further bones of any sort.
