Abstract

Between the 20th and 24th of January 2003 the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council undertook the second phase of an archaeological evaluation on the site of 'Marshall's Garage', Peterborough. The work was carried out in response to a planning condition in advance of development. Six trenches were excavated in order to ascertain the presence or absence of archaeological remains. The subsequent investigation of the trenches revealed a pit, ditch and possible natural channel. Circumstantial evidence suggests that the pit may be prehistoric. The only dating evidence was a sherd of eighteenth century redware from the channel. The ditch contained no dating evidence, however, similarities between deposits in the ditch and channel suggest they acted as drains down slope to the river.
