This site was discovered ahead of building a hub entrance into what will be a huge housing estate over the next few years. It's location is opposite Marston Farm, Stratton, on the A420, close to Gablecross Police Station. It was excavated by Oxford Archaeology over a period of about 4 weeks in the Spring of 2016. Several attempts were made to contact them in order to discover what they had recorded, with no success.
Once the excavation had finished, several people visited the site in order to take photos on the ground and from the air, in order to include the information on SHS website. It was obvious by the large amounts of pottery present, that the site was dated circa 2nd to 4th century AD.
We are always on the look-out for more information about Shrivenham and district. If you have old photos, know of historical facts, old documents (especially deeds) please contact us...
