Subject Digging for Pleasure – the work of South Oxfordshire Archaeology Group

The work of the South Oxfordshire Archaeological Group was described mainly by showing a number of the “digs” carried out by the group. These ranged from a very long running excavation (16+ years)  at a Roman Villa to short (a matter of days) investigations with the County Archaeologist such as at a lower Palaeolithic site.

The importance of individual research was stressed particularly the use of Google Earth which lead SOAG to investigate a number of previously unknown sites and that was illustrated by the possible presence of a Bronze Age burial site just to the north of Sharnbrook Mill as well as a possible Iron Age settlement near Radwell.
