An archaeological strip, map and sample exercise was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology during groundworks associated with clay extraction at South Holmwood Brickworks.
A small, possibly truncated, presumed burnt tree stump similar to three previously excavated in 2011 was recorded. An undated but probably medieval or post-medieval ditch and bank, with a buried soil preserved under the bank, preserves the boundary of woodland shown on all Ordnance Survey maps from the late 19th century. A possible shallow and wide undated ditch was also identified. A small quantity of probably Mesolithic flint was retrieved from the top of the natural substrate
