The Oxford Archaeological Unit carried out a field evaluation at the land to the south of Tesco at junction of the A34 and the A415. The evaluation revealed several archaeological features including a probable Neolithic (3800-2500 BC) long barrow, situated to the west of the site and two Bronze Age ring-ditches, likely to be the remains of round barrows, situated to the north-east of the site. The evaluation confirms the cropmarks evidence shown on aerial photographs taken in 1993. A Bronze Age water hole and two linear features of similar date were also revealed at the north-west end of the development area. Two incomplete vessels of Beaker pottery and charred plant remains were discovered to the south of the ring-ditches.
