Between the 14th and 17th of May Oxford Archaeology East excavated a series of evaluation trenches at the northern end of Gazeley road (Grid ref TL 711 665). The work revealed a series of colluvial and alluvial deposits filling palaeo-channels. Neolithic and Bronze age material was recovered from within these colluvial deposits suggesting some utilisation of the area during these periods. No archaeological cut features, or evidence for significant in situ prehistoric activity was identified. The 'riverbanks' and 'islands' within the palaeo-channels had been heavily plough-truncated, removing any early land surfaces.
