In September 1997 the Oxford Archaeological Unit (OAU) undertook an excavation on the site of a proposed residential development to the south of Mably Way, Wantage. The excavation was carried out in response to the reults of an evaluation and as a part of the planning conditions set by Oxfordshire County Council. The presence of Romano-British activity to the south of the site and the evidence revealed during the excavation suggested that evidence for agricultural activity and possibly settlement would be encountered during the excavation. In the event several linear features were encountered but the majority related to modern or post-medieval field drainage systems and ploughing. Only two features could be tentatively ineterpreted as Romano-British as the paucity of datable finds recovered makes any dates questionable.
