English Heritage investigated fields on Urchfont Hill as part of the Marden Environs Enhancement Project. Aerial survey, geophysics and excavation revealed a prehistoric enclosure, an early Roman trackway and a range of evidence for occupation and agriculture in other periods, including Mesolithic activity and a ploughed-out round barrow. Paul Robinson and Sam Moorhead have respectively undertaken analyses of assemblages of 16 Late Iron Age and 398 Roman coins found through metal-detecting on the site, providing further insights into the significance and character of activity on Urchfont Hill. Collectively this work reveals long term low intensity occupation, with the site becoming a focus for the deposition of coinage in the Late Iron Age and Roman periods
