Abstract

Between the 24th and 27th of February 2009 Oxford Archaeology East was commissioned by May Gurney and the Environment Agency to machine excavate 130m of linear trenching on or near the line of the planned cut-off trench of the St Neots Flood Alleviation Scheme. The results revealed high levels of alluvial deposits associated with a flood plain, a gravel terrace or headland with artefacts being recovered from the early neolithic period. There was also some evidence of Romano-British Occupation in the form of shallow ditches.
