In October 2002, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation on behalf of Cotswold District Council at the Cattle Market/Leisure Centre site, Cirencester, Gloucestershire. The evaluation revealed an inhumation and cremation associated with the Roman extra-mural cemetery of Corinium; a possible buried ploughsoil, containing Iron Age pottery and two linear features of medieval or post-medieval date . The majority of archaeological deposits appear to have been removed during the construction of the Cattle Market

In December 2003 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at the Cattle Market and Leisure Centre, Cirencester, Gloucestershire (NGR SP 0195 0175). The work was commissioned by Cotswold District Council in advance of test pits for ground investigation prior to redevelopment. The watching brief revealed no archaeological features or deposits within the seven test pits.
