Cromerian interglacial deposits at Sugworth, near Oxford, England, and their relation to the plateau drift of the Cotswolds and the terrace sequence of the upper and middle Thames. Shotton, F. W., A. S. Goudie, et al. (1980).
Excavation for the Abingdon bypass revealed at Sugworth, SW of Oxford, a dissected terrace, the Sugworth Bench, covered by a pebbly clay resembling the 'Plateau Drift' or 'Northern Drift' of the Cotswolds. This rested on Kimmeridge Clay of upon a number of sand and gravel-filled channels cut into the Kimmeridge Clay. These channels are considered to be ancient meanders of an old River Thames with a flow probably seven times that of the present river. One of these channels provided a fauna and flora that indicate a Comerian IIIb age. Correlation is attempted with the pre-Boyn Hill terraces and summit deposits of the Thames below the Goring Gap. -from Authors.

The excavation of an oval barrow beside the Abingdon causewayed enclosure, Oxfordshire.
Bradley, R. (1992).
The excavation of an oval crop mark close to the Abingdon causewayed enclosure showed a complex sequence of development, starting with a rectangular ditched enclosure and most probably ending with an oval barrow of a type with parallels elsewhere in lowland England. The site included the grave of two individuals associated with a polished knife, a belt slider and most probably a leaf shaped arrowhead, and produced a series of radiocarbon dates extending from the earlier to the later Neolithic. A number of formal-deposits around one end of the site are matched by similar material from the inner ditch of the causewayed enclosure, suggesting a direct link between the two monuments. -Author
