Abstract

This Desktop Assessment was undertaken by Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit prior to development of land at Holy Cross Church Hall, Meadow Lane, Bury, near Ramsey, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire (TL 2875 8375). The development site comprises a triangular area of some 1250sqm to the east of Holy Cross Church, within the core of the medieval village. No finds are known from the subject site itself. However, the archaeological potential of the whole area can be considered high, with particular reference to the presene of the twelfth century church. Earthwork remains of medieval date survive some 150m to the south of the development site (and church). They consist of a series of house platforms and a trackway/holloway leading into fields where ridge and furrow survive. The distribution of known finds also focuses on the church. In particular, west-east aligned inhumation burials have been uncovered together with medieval pottery immediately south of the church. The state of preservation of any archaeological remains and deposits encountered during ground work is bound to have been affected by modern interventions in the area.
