During April and May 2013 Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological
excavation on behalf of Surrey County Council on the site of a new park and ride
facility at Onslow, Guildford, Surrey. The investigation uncovered a pit and gully
dating from the early Bronze Age and 94 pits that were attributed to the middle
Bronze Age-early Iron Age. The last-mentioned features were arranged into two
spatially distinct groups and were interpreted as the remains of ephemeral
settlement activity. They were similar in character to groups of similarly dated
features that had been discovered during previous excavations a short distance to
the west, forming part of a landscape of prehistoric settlement. A single un-urned
cremation burial was also excavated and was assumed to be contemporary with the
other features.
This document describes the results of the excavation and makes recommendations
for further work and publication.
