Abstract

Between the 14th and the 17th of October 2008 OA East carried out an archaeological evaluation on land at 67 Ermine St, Great Stukeley, Cambridgeshire. 103m of trial trenching was opened which revealed archaeological remains dating from the mid 11th Century AD, possibly immediately Post Conquest. The southernmost Trench (1) contained a substantial sequence of deposits that suggested a hollow way lying at right angles to the direction of Ermine Street. Cart tracks were recorded at the base of the hollow way. Seven other negative features were recorded in the southern half of the proposed development area (Trenches 2 & 3). These represent small scale settlement or occupation of the site, and include a linear beam slot. Almost all excavated features contained Late Saxon pottery which was either St. Neots ware or Stamford ware, both common types of pottery in the region.
