Radley Road Causewayed Camp

A Neolthic ’causewayed enclosure’ was found in excavations in 1927, at a gravel quarry on Radley Road. Further excavations took place in 1963. The enclosure was built in about 3500 BC, according to radiocarbon dates. Pottery, animal bone and flint implements were found in the ditches of the enclosure. These enclosures were communal gathering places for the first farmers in Britain.

The site is now occupied by Cameron Avenue and Gordon Drive.
