In October and November 2015 Oxford Archaeology carried out an archaeological
excavation for Derek O'Neill at Church Farm, Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Warwickshire.
The site is located in the historic core of the village, immediately to the south of the
church. The earliest feature was a pit containing pottery dated to the late Iron Age or
early Roman period. Most of the dated features relate to medieval settlement,
including three shallow pits, two deeper pits or wells, and a possible quarry later
used for rubbish deposition. Pottery evidence suggests that the features date from
the late 12th to early 14th centuries. The pottery is mostly of local origin, and
includes cooking pots with sooting from use. Other finds include animal bone, iron
nails, and fragments of a fine glass vessel. Environmental samples indicate the
cultivation of cereals and legumes. The foundations of recently demolished postmedieval
outbuildings were also encountered.
