Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by Prospect Archaeology Ltd on behalf
of CALA Homes (Chiltern) Ltd to undertake an archaeological evaluation at Land
off Weston Road, Aston Clinton, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. Two phases of
trenching were undertaken in late 2016 and early 2017 to assess the
archaeological potential of a proposed new residential development for up to
75 houses.
A total of 15 trenches were excavated across the site and confirmed the absence
of archaeological features indicated by a previous geophysical survey. Alluvial
deposits were recorded within all the trenches, resulting from past overbank
seasonal flooding from the adjacent stream. The risk of flooding may have
deterred occupation within the area and thus explains why the site had
hitherto only been used as agricultural land
