Abstract

An Archaeological evaluation was carried out on a plot of land at the junction of Moorfield Road and St. John's Street, Duxford, Cambridgeshire (TL 476/63), During November 1994. Although trenching was severely restricted by the abundance of trees and shrubbery which covered the site, several features were recorded, mostly in the chalk natural, below the relatively sterile subsoil. Many of these features contained a small number of pottery sherds, features appeared to date from the Roman period, to early this century. The most significant features appeared to date from the late medieval period and are more abundant on the periphery of the site. These may be boundary ditches, or may mark the edges of a raised piece of ground on which the site stands.
