The East Oxford Archaeology and History Project conducted 1.8 hectares of gradiometer survey and smaller areas of static point gradiometer and earth resistance survey on Donnington Recreation Ground, Iffley in 2012 and 2013.

Test Pit 45, 15 Whitethorne Way

1960’s housing estate. We excavated in the front garden. According to records the area was mostly farm land until the estate was built during the 1960’s.Test pit reached 1m depth in the sondage. Very little found of any apparent significance. Once we had uncovered the pipe (103) we left that section alone. One bone found but not identified; occasional pottery was found – one possible Roman and one possible medieval sherd.

Radiocarbon dates from Archeox excavations at Bartlemas Chapel, autumn 2011

You will all probably remember that before the Project’s investigations almost nothing was known about the burials at Bartlemas. We know now that dozens of people must be buried around the Chapel, within the old curving enclosure wall.  Some of you will remember recording some of the wall’s massive stones now hidden beneath undergrowth.
