Between 13th and 21st February 2017, Oxford Archaeology undertook an
archaeological evaluation comprising 23 trenches on the site of a proposed
residential development near Springhill, Southmoor, Oxfordshire (NGR SU 3897
Archaeological features were present in 13 of the 23 trenches, representing at
least three phases of activity on the site. The earliest phase dated to the
Mesolithic and early Neolithic period and was indicated by a small assemblage
of worked flints recovered from across the site and within treeholes. The second
phase of activity was located within the south-west of the site and comprised
middle Iron Age features including a small enclosure and associated pits in
Trench 2 and a dense pit cluster in Trench 7. The third and final phase was
focused in the north-east of the site and consisted of post-medieval field
boundaries and a probable 19th-century building.
