In September 2019 Oxford Archaeology (OA) undertook a six-trench
archaeological evaluation on behalf of Harcourt Ltd at the site of a proposed
housing development at Clifton Road, Deddington, Oxfordshire. The site lies
close to the historic centre of Deddington. Deddington Castle, a Scheduled
Ancient Monument, overlooks the site to the south-west. The evaluation
aimed to assess whether any activity extended into the site area.
Four of the evaluation trenches contained no archaeological remains with the
natural geology overlain by topsoil. A few natural features and geological
variations were investigated as a precaution. Evidence of pits revealed within
two of the trenches hint at low-level activity, possibly relating to quarrying or
disposal of rubbish during the Roman or medieval period. Based on these
results the archaeological potential of the site is considered to be low.
