Abstract

Between the 6th and 15th of August 2018, Oxford Archaeology East carried out an archaeological evaluation at Monkfield Nutrition, High Street, Shingay Cum Wendy, Cambridgeshire (TL 3212 4764). Fifteen trenches were excavated within a proposed development are covering 2ha. Large areas of the site had been affected by modern disturbance associated with the construction of areas of hard standing and the construction of agricultural buildings; despite this fact, archaeological features were recorded in most of the excavated trenches. These features were dominated by ditches relating to a series of enclosures or field boundaries and produced finds ranging in date from the late Roman to medieval periods and including a small but significant assemblage of early to middle Saxon pottery.
