Between March and August 2011 Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological
watching brief on the site of new facilities at the BMW Mini factory, Cowley Works,
Oxford. The watching brief demonstrated that the larger part of the area within the
development boundary had been subject to prior truncation associated with the
earlier factory buildings on the site removing any potential archaeological horizons.
A less disturbed pre-industrial soil horizon was present within Zone E preserved
under the former buildings that is most likely to have been a 19th century or earlier
ploughsoil. This did not produce any archaeological features, deposits or finds.
