Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation between 15thand 19th April 2002 at land to the west of Oxford Road, Bicester, Oxfordshire on behalf of West Waddy ADP. Eighteen trenches were excavated. The evaluation revealed a concentration of archaeological features in the central area of the site. A number of possible structures were identified including one with substantial square shaped postholes. Two other concentrated clusters of smaller postholes were recorded which might represent additional buildings or possibly stock management features or fence lines. Some spreads of occupation material, pits and numerous Romano-British low status farmstead dating to the late 1st-2nd century. A new sherds of middle Iron Age and Anglo-Saxon pottery were also recovered indicating that the area had also seen activity in these periods.
