Abstract

Between the 24th and 27th of June 2013 Oxford Archaeology East conducted an archaeological evaluation at Wiggin Hill Farm, St Ives, Cambridgeshire (TL3100 7480) in advance of the proposed development of a solar farm with attendant substations and ancillary structures and services. Following an aerial photographic survey of the proposed development area and surrounding fields twenty three trenches were excavated, totalling 1270m, to ascertain whether any archaeological remains survived. These trenches were targeted in areas proposed for access roads and service trenches between the arrays. A single undated ditch was uncovered to the east of the proposed development area whilst two lithic tools were the only finds recovered from the site. Evidence of ridge and furrow cultivation was also located in several trenches.
