Abstract

Archaeological evaluation revealed an Early Neolithic pit containing pottery, flint and animal bone. An environmental sample from this pit produced burnt food remains together with other domestic and culinary waste. The discovery of this pit adds to a growing corpus of Early Neolithic pit sites in East Anglia, of which few have so far been identified on the Cambridgeshire chalklands. A second nearby pit was not excavated but may be of a similar date. Three further features, all possibly of natural origin, were also recorded; two of these contained material of Early Neolithic date.
