OA carried out an archaeological evaluation in February 1990 at Spring Road cemetery in Abingdon. The aim was to establish the nature and extent of archaeological remains within the modern graveyard. Early prehistoric finds were found in graves across the cemetery. Early Iron Age settlement may be concentrated outside the surviving cemetery and since the assessment an Iron Age pit has been found in a grave just south of Trench B. Finds from the graveyard and the features from assessment trenches B, C, D and E demonstrate a substantial settlement of Saxon date.
