Abstract

Oxford Archaeology East undertook an archaeological evaluation at the former USAF medical centre, RAF Upwood, Cambridgeshire (TL 2775 8357) on the 17th and 18th of August 2015. A total of 7 trenches were excavated varying in length from 5m to 40m. Trenches 1 – 3 and 6 – 7 were located either within the car par area or other areas of hard standing around the existing building. Within these trenches the natural geology had been truncated to varying degrees and all contained make-up layers associated with the construction of roads and car parks. Trenches 4 and 5 were in a grassed area but the presence of services made them difficult to excavate. All of the trenches were devoid of archaeological features. Trench 3 contained what were originally thought to be two linear ditches, although these proved to be natural in origin.
