Between June 2013 and February 2014 Oxford Archaeology conducted an
archaeological watching brief during the construction of the new Bicester
Community Hospital at Kings End, Bicester, Oxfordshire (centred at NGR: SP 5803
The watching brief confirmed some the findings of a previous evaluation of the site,
with observations showing that the majority of the site had been disturbed or
truncated down to the level of the underlying cornbarsh.
Two ditches, of possible Roman date, recorded during the previous evaluation were
not observed during the current works. It is possible that changes to the existing car
park in the intervening period may have disturbed these deposits.
A buried ploughsoil and a possible garden soil, both likely to be of post-medieval
date, were recorded underlying modern made ground deposits in parts of the site.
