Abstract

On the 4th and 8th December 2008, OA East carried out an archaeological watching brief at land to the rear of 1 The High Street, Cherry Hinton, Cambridge (TL 4860 5628). The monitoring was carried out during excavation of footings for a single block of 10 new flats. Two c.13th century pits were found about 16m to the west of the present High Street cutting a medieval levelling layer. These pits were probably within a later medieval back plot. They were situated within the same area as three medieval pits in the 2008 evaluation. The unabraded pottery recovered from one of the pits implies domestic occupation was nearby, presumably fronting the High Street.
