Abstract

An Archaeological evaluation of approximately one hectare of land to the north of the church of St. Peter and St. Paul was undertaken by the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit in November 1999. Four trenches were dug and revealed features containing prehistoric and Roman remains. Large sherds of at least seven late Bronze Age vessels were found. The pottery may be associated with a burial rite that occurred in a prominent position on Chatteris island. The nature of the group of pottery forms indicates rapid reburial (with the antler and a possible loom weight) with care following discovery. In spite of the location of the site close to the centre of medieval Chatteris no features that can positively be ascribed to the medieval period have been identified.
