Abstract

In June 1993, Cambridgeshire Archaeology undertook an archaeological evaluation on the proposed Trout Lake at Southfork Farm. Substantial archaeological remains have been identified to the south along the side of a roddon (extinct water channel) dating to the Roman and Medieval periods. Field walking and air photographs have revealed many sites in this area, however alluviation (deposit from flooding) has lead to possible masking of features not on roddons and they would only be revealed through trenching. No archaeological activity, either sites or artefacts, were recovered within the trench excavated. The asessment investigated down 2.50 metres in places, the maximum depth of the Trout Lake, and revealed no archaeology appearing at this depth. It was concluded that no archaeology will be disturbed by the development.
