On the 29th June 2010, Oxford Archaeology East carried out a test pit evaluation at Furrowfirelds, Chatteris (TL 3947 8657). The work was a community project involving local people and schools and was carried out within an area identified for the construction of a new play equipment. The site was located within the Furrowfields playing ground which is a site of significant surviving visible ridge and furrow (CHER 08670). This evaluation was carried out with pupils from Cromwell Community College who assisted in the excavation of the test pits. Children from nearby Kingsfield Primary School were also involved in the project as classes visited the excavations and were involved in activities throughout the day. An archaeologist also spent the day in the classrooms providing lessons about archaeology as well as opportunities to handle artefacts.
