The OAU undertook an archaeological field evaluation at the Parish Church of ST. Mary, Sulhamstead Abbots, West Berkshire in May 1999, on behalf of The Whiteley & Beach Partnership, Chartered Architects of Theale, Reading. The evaluation was commissioned as part of a conditional planning permission in advance of the construction of anew parish room in the churchyard, to the north-west of the church. Two test pits were excavated within the area of the footprint of the proposed building: four graves were revealed in Test Pit 1 and a single grave found in Test Pit 2. Articulated human remains were uncovered c 1 m below the present ground level in two of the graves within Test Pit 1. The graves were undated, but are likely to be of post-medieval date. No other archaeological features or deposits were observed during the excavation.
