(22 miles N.E. of Cirencester)
(1) Probable Settlement (SP 150345), Romano-British,
at Upton, is indicated by finds at points spread over 4
acres in and near a deserted mediaeval village excavated
by Birmingham University; some finds are in stratified
levels, but as yet none is associated with any structure.
The greatest diversity of finds comes from beneath a
mediaeval house at 'a'. The site, on Inferior Oolite, is
adjacent to springs.
Finds include 1st to 4th-century pottery, 3rd and
4th-century coins, stone and pottery roof tiles, quern
fragments, and iron and bronze brooches.
