Abstract

Between the 9th and 10th of July 2013 Oxford Archaeology East conducted an archaeological evaluation on the site of the former Elms garage, Cambridge Road, Great Shelford (TL 4535 5371). The works consisted of four linear trial trenches with a total length of 67m. Archaeology was uncovered in Trenches 3 and 4 in the front half of the plot. All of the trenches were located in hard-standing areas formerly used for parking cars outside of the garage. Trench 1 was located to the rear of the plot and contained no archaeology. Trench 2 was heavily truncated by modern services and pits and also contained no archaeological remains. Excavations in Trench 3 also uncovered large areas of modern truncation. Three segments of ditch containing no datable material were uncovered at the southern end of this trench. A ditch found in Trench 4 contained nine fragments of a single early Roman jar . This ditch, and possibly those found in Trench 3 may be evidence for a Roman field-system.
