Abstract

The evaluation was commissioned by Cambridgeshire County Council and was carried out by Ian Meadows of Peterborough Museum. The area to be assessed was about 100m x 65m and the assessment took the form of a series of machine cut trenches. The trenches revealed an extensive spread of archaeological features and potential features over the site. A spot examination of the material from the site demonstrated occupation from the Iron age and early Roman periods with some pieces from the Saxon period. Within the limitations of the brief only limited sampling of features was undertaken. The scraped surface of all the trenches was planned and scored 'Archaeological', '?Archaeological' and 'Natural'.
