Abstract

An archaeological evaluation was carried out at New Road, St Ives to inform the planning process in advance of the construction of a proposed housing development. The work was carried out by the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council between 20th November to 22nd November. A total of 4 trenches were excavated three of these contained archaeological features from which animal bone was recovered. A significant post-medieval ditch feature on a northeast-southwest alignment was recorded in three of the trenches. This feature has been related to one shown on Pettis 1728 map and aerial photographic evidence also identifies the boundary.
