Archaeology at the Devils Churchyard

Excavation were undertaken in 1979-81 at the Devils Churchyard, the Iron Age feature at OS ref: SU 6525 8400.  This work was a project initiated by Oxford Archaeology who then ‘subcontracted’ excavation to SOAG under the leadership of Cynthia Graham Kerr.  Short narratives of when SOAG worked there can be found in the archive of SOAG Messengers (search either for Checkendon or Devils Churchyard and look at the entries for 1979-1982). OA wrote up the results in two documents:

A summary in a 1981 Oxoniensia article  (1MB)
