Didcot or is a town and civil parish in Oxfordshire about 9mi south of Oxford. Didcot is known for its railway junction, railway museum and power stations, and is the official gateway to the Science Vale: three large science and technology centres in the surrounding villages of Milton (Milton Park), Culham (Culham Science Centre) and Harwell (Harwell Science and Innovation Campus).HistoryAncient and medievalThe area around present-day Didcot has been inhabited for at least 9000 years, a large scale archaeological dig between 2010-2013 produced finds from the Mesolithic, Neolithic, Iron Age and Bronze Ages. During the Roman era the inhabitants of the area tried to drain the marshland by digging ditches through what is now the Ladygrove area north of the town near Long Wittenham, evidence of which was found during surveying in 1994. A hoard of 126 gold Roman coins dating to around 160 CE was found just outside the village in 1995 by an enthusiast with a metal detector; this is now displayed at the Ashmolean Museum on loan from the British Museum.
