Abstract

Between the 11th and 21st of January 2016 Oxford Archaeology East carried out an archaeological evaluation on land between Ferrar's Road, Dryden's Walk and Edison Bell Way, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire (TL 2349 7210). The evaluation, consisting of ten evaluation trenches, was carried out ahead of proposed construction of 70 houses and associated services and access. The Evaluation found a buried soil horizon, of possibly late medieval or post-medieval date in the northern part of the development area (Trench 1) and the central eastern part of the development area (Trench 6). This was cut by a small number of features containing fragments of pottery on the northern and eastern edges of the site. Evidence of a large former water channel of the Barrack Brook running east-west across the centre of the development area was also found.
