Thames Valley Archaeological Services Occasional Paper 7

Medieval Settlement at Oak Farm, Milcombe, Banbury, Oxfordshire: Excavation in 2012

by David Platt and Richard Tabor

Occasional Paper 7 cover

An excavation at Oak Farm has explored a component of the medieval settlement at Milcombe. Occupation appears to have commenced in the 11th century, perhaps within the late Saxon period with the construction of a droveway. The manor of Milcombe was mentioned in Domesday Book in 1086. Subsequent phases of use in the 11th-13th century included the presence of rectangular post-built structures. These were eventually replaced by stone-founded buildings in the 13th to 15th centuries which also included a probable dovecote. Evidence of use in the early post-medieval period is rather slight but the site become incorporated within the Oak Farm complex in the 19th century.

A4 soft cover, 23pp, illustrated throughout including 7 colour plates.
