Abstract

The Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council has conducted an archaeological evaluation on 0.138ha of land at 17 Camel Road, Littleport, Cambridgeshire (TL 5663/8724). This was in advance of a proposed housing development. An oblique section across a very large channel at least 25-30m wide and probably more than 2.2m deep, possibly artificial or enhanced from its original size, was revealed. Roman pottery of 2nd - 4th century date was found throughout the fills of this feature, and it may have a functional connection with other Roman activity found just to the south across Blackbank Drain in 1997-1998.
