Abstract :
Presents the results of excavation projects in the lower Blackwater valley, in advance of gravel quarrying, at Slough House Farm, Chigborough Farm, and Howell's Farm. The sites were identifed as cropmarks appearing on aerial photographs. All sites revealed evidence of changing use of the landscape. The most important discoveries at Slough House Farm were a Neolithic enclosure, Iron Age settlement, Saxon timber-lined wells and a Saxon pit containing metalworking debris, this latter an outlier of the Rook Hall site. At Chigborough Farm, a putative Neolithic building, enclosures and field systems of Late Bronze Age-Iron Age and of Late Iron Age date, and a 'boat-shaped' building of assumed Saxon date were of particular significance. Other known sites and recent excavations are considered in a final synthesising chapter discussing the evolving landscape. Artefacts, and zoological and botanical evidence are discussed. ;
