Remains of Med settlement, E of Harbury Lane
Archaeological investigation revealed the remains of buildings and ridge and furrow dating to the Medieval period. The site is located 500m south of the church, Ufton.
1 Cotswold Archaeological Trust (CAT) was commissioned to undertake an archaeological evaluation on land to the E of Harbury Lane, Ufton. The evaluation indicated that Medieval and Post Medieval deposits, comprising wall footings, demolition debris, a linear ditch and extant ridge and furrow, survive across the study area.
2 Excavations were carried out in November-December 1996 and May 1997 on the same site. The site covered parts of two later Medieval plots within the village on the east side of the main north-south street. The earliest Medieval occupation dated to the 12th century and consisted of a number of enclosure ditches, probably associated with a timber building c8-10m long, marked by a line of postholes. The area was rearranged, probably in the 13th century, and a house with stone footings was built at right angles to Harbury Lane, probably with an outbuilding to its south. The site remained in occupation until the early 15th century.
