Abstract

A programme of trial trenching was conducted by Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) at the North Cambridge Academy, Arbury Road, Cambridge (TL 4560 6070). The work was carried out in two phases which were linked to the demolition programme of the school buildings. The first evaluation phase was carried out between the 22nd and the 23rd of December 2014. The evaluation comprised of six evaluation trenches. The only archaeology identified was one undated linear feature and a probable plough furrow, which was undated but possibly medieval. The majority of the trenches in the first phase were ether sterile or so heavily truncated by modern building foundations as to render the survival of any archaeological features unlikely. The second phase of work was carried out on the 28th of July 2016 and comprised four evaluation trenches. The only identified archaeology in this phase was the edge of a feature possibly a linear ditch. Not enough of the feature survived to provide any dating evidence. The remainder of the trenches were all sterile.
