In 2022, Oxford Archaeology South will be digging the site of a proposed children’s home on the outskirts of the West Oxfordshire village of Aston.

Documents indicate that Aston was founded by the 10th century AD, but little else is known about the subsequent origins and development of the village. Our excavation will shed light on medieval Aston before the time of the Black Death, from the mid-11th century to the mid-13th century AD.

We will share regular updates on our progress and what we've found on this blog in the coming weeks.
