Abstract

In September 1994 Cambridgeshire County Council’s Archaeological Field Unit carried out field walking on Tiled House Farm, Streatham (SAM 275) (TL 523733). The work was conducted as part of proposals for field walking three ancient monuments in Cambridgeshire following recommendations from H. Paterson (Field Monument Warden, English Heritage) to assess the degree of destruction resulting from ploughing on. Tiled House Farm was Scheduled on the basis of significant quantities of Roman Pottery and aerial photographs indicating a Roman Farm stead. The majority of finds consisted of pottery from the late second to early third centuries. The results of the field walking indicate that whilst few fresh deposits are being exposed, which suggests that archaeology beneath the plough soil is in fairly stable condition, significant redistribution of finds within the plough soil is occurring. These deposits are judged to be in fragile condition as a result of ploughing.
