On 17th April 2018, Oxford Archaeology East (OAE) undertook an evaluation at 8a, The Rampart, Haddenham, prior to redevelopment of the plot for housing. A single trench was opened, totalling 31 square metres and a single sub-circular pit was revealed within the north-western corner of the trench. This pit contained 40g of medieval (12th to 14th century) pottery and 20g of lava quern. Overlying this pit and within the northern limit of the trench was a layer of relict topsoil, that contained two sherds (30g) of medieval pottery. This was in turn overlain by modern hardcore.
Major modern truncation was noted within the southern half of the trench, presumably from the construction of the housing currently situated within the area. Hydrocarbon contamination was evident throughout the trench, with the excavated pit also being affected.
