SEACOURT

DESCRIPTION + /

Remains of the deserted medieval settlement of Seacourt, situated on either side of the cutting of the Oxford Western Bypass. Limited excavation in 1939, along with more recent investigation, including the examination of aerial photographs, confirm the extent of the settlement and the survival of associated buried remains dating from between 1300 and 1400. The village is laid out around several hollow ways or streets, the most prominent odf which runs roughly north-south to the west of the modern road. At least nine building platforms lie alongside these hollow ways. The site of the church is also visible. A Roman-British ditch and circular building were found, dating from the mid 2nd century to the 4th century AD. Pottery of 10th to early 12th century date was also found, along with a fragment of blue glass thought to date from the 12th century. Earthworks associated with the village were mapped from air photographs by RCHME's Thames Valley NMP project.
