Between the 3rd and the 14th of December 2012 Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological evaluation at Cowans Camp, Watchfield, Oxfordshire. Twenty-four trenches were located within the proposed development area. Excavation of thetrenches confirmed the location of a quarry shown on 19th-century maps, and revealed various features dating to the 20th Century use of the camp, many of which were visible on aerial photographs. These features included various service trenches, two ditches and one pit. No trace of any earlier archaeological activity was observed, either as archaeological features or deposits, or as residual finds.
