    DescriptionExcavations at Spring Road Municipal Cemetery, Abingdon, Oxfordshire have revealed activity extending from the Mesolithic to the Saxon period. The most significant discovery was an arc of substantial postholes which formed part of one of very few middle Bronze timber circles known in southern Britain. The most important earlier evidence was a Beaker burial containing a copper awl which is amongst the earliest metal artefacts from Britain. Mesolithic flint, an oval Peterborough Ware bowl and a Grooved Ware pit were also found. A group of three middle Iron Age crouched inhumation burials are amongst the most interesting later finds, which included also an early-middle Iron Age roundhouse, a Roman field system and Anglo-Saxon sunken-featured buildings.
