Abstract

Between the 13th and 15th November 2000 an archaeological evaluation was undertaken on 5.5 hectares of land adjacent to, and to the south of, the East of England Show Ground, Orton Waterville, Peterborough (TL 1390 9480), by staff of the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit (AFU). The work was carried out prior to development of the site involving the construction of industrial units with associated access roads and services. Eight evaluation trenches totalling 814m were excavated across the site. Remnants of furrows were uncovered and interpreted as evidence for agricultural use of the land during the post-medieval period. The absence of earlier finds on the site can probably be taken to indicate a low level of activity prior to the post-medieval period.
