Between the 8th and 9th August 2016, Oxford Archaeology East conducted a trial trench evaluation at Little Paxton Primary School, Little Paxton, Cambridgeshire (TL 1888 6239) ahead of a planned extension to the school. Three trenches were excavated revealing a series of medieval features dating to the 12th-13th century. Pits, gullies and finds recovered from the southernmost trench suggest peripheral settlement activity, with a number of inter-cutting features yielding small quantities of pottery, animal bone, charcoal and charred cereals. To the north, a series of closely spaced, shallow parallel linear gullies were revealed, possibly representing cultivation beds. Part of a large pit was also uncovered, likely to be a sand and gravel quarry pit.
