On April 2, 2014, Oxford Archaeology undertook an archaeological watching brief
during the installation of new visitor information signs at North Leigh Roman Villa.
The watching brief observed two layers potentially associated with the levelling of
the villa courtyard, or buried ploughsoil. These deposits contained ceramic building
material, and a pottery sherd which could only be broadly dated to the Roman
period. The lower of these deposits was observed to be overlying a possible stone
and mortar structure, although the limited extent of the excavations made the true
extent, form and function of this structure impossible to determine. Additionally two
deposits likely to represent spoil from the early 20th century excavations of the Villa
were observed to the north-west of the central range
