During July 2018 Oxford Archaeology undertook a trial trench evaluation on
behalf of Williams Formula 1 at land to the north of Grove, Oxfordshire
(centred on NGR SU 40065 91151). The evaluation was targeted on the results
of a previous geophysical survey (Magnitude 2018) which revealed numerous
linear and curvilinear anomalies, including several that appeared to represent
roundhouses within the south‐eastern part of the site.
The evaluation uncovered ditches of Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman and
medieval dates. The Bronze Age ditches were located within the northern part
of the site and may represent a continuation of the system of trackways and
coaxial field systems identified to the south‐east during previous phases of
work. Ditches of Iron Age date were present in the north and east of the site,
but were of greater density within the south and south‐east where a series of
potential roundhouses were of predominantly middle Iron Age date. Pits and
postholes associated with this settlement were also present.
The ditches of both Roman and medieval date were also more prevalent
within the southern part of the site and appeared to represent field
boundaries, both on a broadly north‐south to east‐west orientation
