Yarnton: Iron Age and Romano-British settlement and landscape, by Gill Hey, Paul Booth and Jane Timby, describes the Iron Age and Roman occupation of a multi-period landscape on the floodplain and gravel terrace of the River Thames. The earlier Iron Age settlement includes post-built structures, a possible shrine, a D-shaped smithy, about 1000 pits, and a cemetery of 35 crouched inhumation burials, which are rare for the period. The late Iron Age and Roman settlement boasts a series of enclosures, corn-drying ovens, and two early Roman pottery kilns.
