Abstract

Between the 5th of March and the 16th of April 2013 Oxford arhaeology East carried out archaeological monitoring and recording of geotechnical test pits between Peterborough and Guyhirn Bridge, Mortons Leam. A total of 37 test pits were dug and recorded. Although no definite archaeological remains or artefacts were found but the test pits did give a useful information relating to the sequence of soils and build up of deposits along the length of the southern bank of the drain known as Mortons Leam. Pockets of sand relating to gravel spurs or river channels were noted along with outcrops of gravel, reed and peat beds
