Test pit 66: 9 Junction Road, Temple Cowley, OX4 2NT

This test pit was one of a cluster dug in the Temple Cowley area on the weekend of 29-30th June 2013 with the aim of finding out more about the archaeology of the area,especially the medieval activity associated with the Preceptory of the Knights Templar.The site was located within the grounds of a large house known as Quintain on old maps until the current house was built around the turn of the 20th century.The test pit showed that a large amount of topsoil had been imported to the site but the sealed levels below revealed a significant amount of Roman and some medieval activity.
