In May 2018, Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological evaluation on
land at the former Grove Airfield near Wantage in Oxfordshire. This work was
commissioned by Persimmon Homes (Wessex) in accordance with a
condition of planning permission for a residential development with
associated infrastructure. A total of 34 trenches revealed features dating to
the middle and late Iron Age and from the early to late Roman periods. The
focus of the activity, probably representing settlements of these periods,
appears to be located within the south-eastern part of the evaluation.
Ditches located beyond the apparent settlement focus most probably relate
to associated field systems.
