Abstract

Between the 11th and the 12th of August 2008 Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) undertook an archaeological evaluation at Nene Infant School, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire (TF 4653 0938) in advance of the construction of an extension to the existing school. This evaluation involved the excavation of a trial trench aligned NW to SE. The trench was 12m long and 1.50m wide at both ends. The evaluation did not reveal any Significant archaeological features, finds or deposits that indicated the presence of any substantial human archaeological activity occurring at the site prior to the 18 th century. There were two pits containing post-medieval material and a brick built structure, clearly 19th century in date. The underlying solid geology was sandy silts overlying Ampthill Clay.
