Roman pottery found at Cowley Between Towns Road student flats

ALL roads lead to Cowley, it seems: archaeologists have uncovered a trove of Roman pottery beneath a former car dealership set to become flats.

Developer Watkin Jones knocked down the old Swan Motor Centre in November 2017 to make way for 144 new student flats in four blocks following the granting of planning permission by Oxford City Council.

With the 15.5 million Between Towns Road development now well under way, the company has released the full archaeological findings from the site a condition of the council's original planning approval.

The work was carried out by the archaeology unit of Southampton City Council between November 2017 and January 2018.

A report by Jane Timby from the unit said they found 2,656 sherds of pottery weighing 47kg during the dig, the vast majority dated to the Roman period.
