During January 2013 Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological excavation
at the Bicester Village retail outlet in an area where a new coach park was to be
constructed. It was anticipated that the excavation would find evidence of the late
Iron Age-early Roman settlement located to the south of the site or of the Saxon
settlement to the north. Instead the excavation uncovered a group of tree-throw
holes containing a significant assemblage of late Mesolithic flintwork, a possible
ditched enclosure of Bronze Age date and two early-middle Iron Age pits. The
absence of Saxon material indicates that the southern limit of occupation associated
with the late Saxon minster and lay settlement, from which Bicester originated, must
lie somewhere north of this site
