Between March and September 2010 Oxford Archaeology (South) undertook an archaeological investigation at Oxford University Parks, Oxford, on behalf of Oxford
University Estates Directorate and Scottish & Southern Energy Plc. The work comprised an archaeological watching brief during the trenching for HV and IT
ducts, and a small-scale archaeological excavation in advance of an extension to the existing electricity sub-station. A Neolithic pit, part of a possible barrow ditch, Roman ditches and pits, and late medieval and/or post-medieval boundary ditches were recorded. The Neolithic pit may have been contemporary with a nearby barrow
and the Roman and later features formed part of an agricultural landscape
