Abstract

During march 1995, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council undertook an archaeological evaluation in the village of Whaddon, Cambridgeshire (TL 348/463). A single evaluation trench was excavated across the area of land to be developed, to ascertain the presence or absence of archaeological remains. The subsequent investigation of the trench revealed several features all of which were cut into the chalk natural, sealed below a subsoil probably deposited by colluvial action in medieval times. Many of the features contained pottery, provisionally dated to the Pagan Anglo-Saxon period. Worked flint was also found which was considered to be residual due to its weather-damaged state. Two of the features excavated, revealed in section, evidence of post-settings suggesting a possible structure was in place during the Anglo-Saxon period.
