On 20th February 2007, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation at Box Vicarage, Box, Wliltshire (NGR: ST 823 685) on behalf of the Hookway Partnership LLP, in advance of new drainage work and
the installation of a replacement septic tank. The evaluation revealed the continuation of a previously encountered septic tank and deposils of poslmedieval
garden soil. Evidence for the continuation of the villa within this area was not encountered.

In December 2007, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief at Box Vicarage, Box, Wiltshire (NGR: ST 8238 6853). The work was commissioned by the Diocese of Bristol in advance of the excavation of a new service trench and access chamber. The watching brief encountered evidence for a continuation of a known Romano-British wall, a possible return and a robber trench all relating to the Romano-British villa, and also for a post-medieval stone culvert associated with the Vicarage.
