In May 2021 Oxford Archaeology carried out a trial trench evaluation to inform
mitigation works ahead of the construction of a junction for the Wantage
Eastern Link Road. The evaluation comprised two trenches and was targeted
on the inner of two ovoid cropmarks. The evaluation revealed that the inner
cropmark related to a ditch of late Bronze Age date which is provisionally
interpreted as forming part of a hill top enclosure. A posthole within the
enclosed area also contained late Bronze Age material. The outer enclosure,
which was not investigated, may be of later Iron Age date as is the case with
local examples at Taplow, Rams Hill and Wittenham
