Oxford Archaeology carried out an excavation and watching brief at Kingsbury Hill House (NGR
SU 1890 6938) for CgMs Consulting on behalf of Thomas Homes Ltd. The excavation uncovered
an area of medieval pits, probably domestic, and a group of postholes giving the outline of a
rectangular timber building. The structure and some of the pits are aligned with Herd Street, which
potentially identifies the area as a yard associated with a plot or burgage fronting the street. Pottery
dated this activity to the 12th to 14th centuries. No further activity was evident until the 17th/18th
century, when quarry pits were dug to extract the underlying chalk and flint. Finds collected from
the features included pottery, clay pipes, animal bone and a stone mortar.
