In May and June 2007, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an
archaeological watching brief at Rectory Farm, Moreton Lane,
Northmoor, Oxfordshire (NGR: SP 4167 0240). The work was
commissioned by Robert Florey in advance of construction of a new cattle
yard and machinery store. The area is on the edge of a Scheduled Ancient
Monument (SAM 141) which is a site of extensive crop marks dating to the
prehistoric and Romano-British periods.
The watching brief revealed a system of Romano-British boundary and
drainage ditches showing evidence of multi-phase use, together with a
small cluster of four hut circles also dating to the Romano-British period.
While much evidence of activity was observed, the lack of evidence for
domestic occupation encountered, suggests that this area was on the
margins of the nearby settlement.
