On the 6th and 7th of July 2017, Oxford Archaeology undertook an
archaeological evaluation comprising three trenches on land forming a
proposed housing development at Naldertown, Wantage, Oxfordshire (NGR:
SU 39213 88136).
Archaeological features were present within all three trenches. Numerous
ditches revealed during the investigation are likely to represent the remains of
Roman enclosure and field systems. Stone roof tiles, ceramic building
material, nails and large limestone fragments suggest that there may have
been a structure or structures in the vicinity of the site.
A Victorian soakaway or well was also present and can be associated with a
structure shown on the historic maps.
The eastern boundary of the site is formed by Ham Road, which follows the
root of the former Roman road. The results of the evaluation may be indicative
of a roadside settlement.
