Abstract

From the 11th to the 12th of June 2012 Oxford Archaeology East conducted an archaeological evaluation at The Whaddons and Buttsgrove Way, Huntingdon (TL 248 730) in advance of the development of 48 new houses. Nine trenches were excavated in total. Archaeological features containing medieval and post-medieval ceramics were uncovered in two of these trenches and probably related to agricultural activity in this area in the past. An undated ditch was also uncovered. A large amount of disturbance, including, service trenches, pits and brick rubble dumps, had taken place during the construction of the extant houses all of which truncated the natural deposits.
