Abstract

Between February and April 2010, Oxford Archaeology (OA) were commissioned by
Hanbury Developments Ltd to undertake an archaeological watching brief at Land at
High Street, Wanborough, Wiltshire (SU 210 835). The work was undertaken during
groundworks associated with the construction of new housing, following the
demolition of the existing garage and the removal of the associated fuel storage
tanks.
A condition was placed on the planning consent that an archaeological watching
brief be undertaken during groundwork for the new development.
The watching brief revealed Gault Clay, directly overlain by modern made ground
deposits, or heavily truncated by the installation of the fuel tanks. No archaeological
deposits were observed during the course of the watching brief. It seems likely that
the site has been levelled during the construction of the garage in the mid-late 20th
century.
