In September 2011 Oxford Archaeology conducted an archaeological evaluation at
Roves Farm, Sevenhampton, Swindon, Berkshire (NGR SU 206 889).
The evaluation concentrated on defining the limits of a settlement observed through a prior geophysical survey. The droveway/trackway investigated as the boundary to the area of occupation produced both later prehistoric and Romano-British artefactual evidence as did a smaller enclosure investigated to the north of the site.
Evidence for the later occupation of the site is centred on the system of medieval ridge and furrow which covers the site, and a large stone-lined drain aligned east
west across field 1.
