Abstract

In August 2012, Oxford Archaeology (OA) undertook an archaeological evaluation at Park Road, Didcot, Oxfordshire. Seventeen trenches were excavated of which four revealed archaeological features. These comprised three postholes and a pit within the eastern part of the site and a narrow gully and a single posthole within the northwestern part of the site. None of these features produced dating evidence although the pit and posthole in Trench 16 are likely to be of a recent origin.
Evidence for ridge and furrow cultivation was present across the majority of the northern and western part of the site. Within the northern field this was faint but
visible upstanding earthworks on a ENE-WSW alignment. Furrows were also visible in some of the excavated trenches within the southern field
