Abstract

An archaeological evaluation was carried out by the Archaeological Field Unit in the grounds of 90 Glebe Road, Cambridge between the 10th and 14th April 2000. The work was carried out on behalf of Berkeley Homes (Eastern) Limited. Six trenches were placed within the proposed development area. Trench 5 contained a small number of archaeological features of Middle Iron Age date. The remaining trenches all contained ditches, some of which were dated by finds to the post-medieval period although a number contained no dating evidence. These latter features may be inferred to be post-medieval based on their alignments. The middle Iron Age activity may continue beyond the impact area of the development to the south and west of the evaluation trenches.
