From the 28th to the 31st of January 2013, Oxford Archaeology carried out a trial
trench evaluation on the behalf of CgMs Consulting on a site to the east of Chain
Hill on the southern edge of Wantage in Oxfordshire.
The trenches revealed a single pit of medieval date, and a ditch that contained a
fragment of lava quern of likely Roman or mid- to late-Saxon date. Other features
including ditches and postholes were undated, although a tree-throw hole contained
a single piece of flint debitage. Plough furrows of possible medieval date were also
noted, as was evidence of made ground of recent date within the extreme northwestern
corner of the site.
