Abstract

In September 1995 the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council carried out an archaeological evaluation of a plot of land off Pratt Street, Soham (TL 5927/7346), on behalf of Kanagan Developments. Three linear trenches totalling 55m were excavated, revealing linear and curvilinear ditches, pits and post holes of a late Saxon date (10th to 12th centuries AD). However, the level of the water table restricted the opportunity to recover datable artefacts from many of the features. In addition to the medieval features, the two trenches nearer to the street frontage contained late 19th or early 20th century rubbish pits.
