Oxford Archaeology (OA) was commissioned by Lady Georgina Bowman-Shaw to
undertake an archaeological evaluation at Goose Farm, Fritwell, Oxfordshire
(centred on NGR SP 52450 29190). The work was undertaken to inform a proposed
development for the formation of a pond and woodland planting area to aid in the
enhancement of local ecology and biodiversity. The site was considered to have
moderate archaeological potential as it is located just to the south of the 12th century
St Olaves church and within an area where prehistoric and medieval features have
been previously identified. Four trenches were undertaken over one week in early
July 2014.
The trenches were excavated to the top of the natural limestone and revealed
topsoil, subsoil, and recent demolition rubble containing asbestos in the area of the
proposed pond. No archaeological features or deposits were uncovered and no
finds were recovered. Therefore based on the results of the evaluation the
archaeological potential of the proposed site is considered to be low.
