Excavation by D Barker for Egham by Runnymede Historical Society in advance of redevelopment located LBA features immediately below a gravel surface of c AD 1660. Large quantities of later 17th and early 19th century material were recovered from rubbish pits. (166)
Site watching by D Williams of redevelopment recovered medieval and later pottery, including one possibly Saxon rim sherd, but no related features. (157)
Excavation was carried out over the two years by D Williams for the Holmesdale Archaeological Group and SyAS, and in September-October 1974 by R J Poulton for SCC and DOE. The latter concentrated on the Saxo-Norman levels with several pits and some evidence for minor industry, suggesting that this area was the ‘backlands’ to a settlement closer to the parish church. A later trial trench on the Church Street frontage could not confirm this hypothesis because of late disturbance. A notable find was a probably Saxo-Norman bone skate.
watching of redevelopment by D Williams located several undated floor levels immediately over tilled soil with 13th and 14th century pottery. A nearly complete early 16th century Raeren mug was also recovered. (157)
Excavation by S Nelson for Nonsuch Antiquarian Society in advance of redevelopment studied the remains of a mid-late 17th century timber-framed building. (167)
Pottery and glass recovered from beneath 16th/17th century outbuildings (now cottages) by Mayford History Society and reported by Nancy Hawkins.
A possibly 17th century well, with brick domed cover, recorded by Nancy Hawkins for Mayford History Society.
Fieldwalking by Mayford History Society after shallow-ploughing, reported by Nancy Hawkins; nothing of significance noted.
Excavation by M Russell for the Bourne Society on a site located by R Williams in fieldwork. The probable Mesolithic ground surface was identified, and c 6000 pieces of flint were recovered.
Two trial excavations by G H Cole in advance of redevelopment produced Mesolithic cores and flakes, medieval and post-medieval pottery but no structures. A stratified sequence of c 50 clay pipe bowls from the early 17th to the mid-19th centuries was recovered. (182)
