Abstract

An archaeological evaluation was carried out on land adjoining Overthorpe Road Industrial Estate, Causeway, Grimsbury, Banbury, Oxon. (SP 471407). Shallow earthworks visible in the north field represented ridge and furrow cultivation and a possible field boundary. These were also detected in the evaluation trenches.
Modern deposits, ditches and a pit were also detected, as were three undated shallow cuts; other than this no archaeological features or deposits were located.
Much of the subsoil had been disturbed by the laying of land drains, water pipes and ditches. Several sherds of post-Medieval pottery were recovered from the subsoil,
these were not retained, one medieval sherd was discovered in a post-Medieval context.
