Oxford Archaeology was commissioned by CgMs Consulting to undertake an
archaeological evaluation of the site of a proposed development at Malthouse
Farm, Brighthampton, Standlake, centred on NGR 438578 203380. The
evaluation took place between 13th-16th of March 2017.
The works comprised a trenched evaluation. Ten 30m x 1.8m trenches
represented a 2% sample of the investigation area. The trenches were arrayed
to investigate anomalies revealed by the geophysical survey and to otherwise
form an evenly distributed investigation across the site.

moderate density across the area. Pits and ditches dating to the 11th-14th
centuries were uncovered, although not certain evidence was found for
buildings. Finds comprised a range of local, domestic material and included a
complete jug of glazed Minety/Wychwood type dating c 1250-1400. No certain
features of other periods were discovered, although a small number of late
Saxon sherds and a single Roman sherd suggest activity of these periods in the
