Abstract

Between the 3rd and the 24th of May 2000, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council (AFU) carried out an observation and subsequent excavation along the route of the new Bourn to Caldecote Highfields water pipeline, Cambridge (TL 3370/5990 to TL 3540/5970). Between the 15th and the 31st of August, the AFU also carried out observation and subsequent excavation along the route of the new Bourn to Cambourne water pipeline, Cambridge (TL 3370/5990). Both projects were commissioned by Cambridge Water Company. Observation of the topsoil removal on the Bourn to Caldecote Highfields pipeline revealed a small site which was rapidly investigated, producing a considerable quantity of Roman pottery. Several linear features including a possible roadside ditch were excavated. The smaller linear features were all cut through an earlier spread which contained much Roman pottery and a small quantity of building material. A small pit contained the squashed remains of an almost complete Roman sandy greyware vessel from the third or Fourth centuries AD. Observation on the Bourn to Cambourne pipeline route revealed a single boundary ditch, probably Roman in date.
