Abstract

On April 10th, 1996 the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council carried out an evaluation on land at The Perse School for Boys, Hills Road, Cambridge (TL 4629/5570). The work was carried out for Saunders Boston Ltd on behalf of the Perse School, on the site of a proposed sports hall, swimming pool, and associated facilities. Although close to the line of a Roman road, an analysis of aerial photographs and the present evaluation discovered no significant archaeological remains. Two postholes found in one of the five evaluation trenches were tentatively assigned to the post-medieval period associated with Truslove’s Farm.
