Abstract

The Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council has conducted an archaeological evaluation on 0.627ha of land at Harradine's Farm, Woodhurst, Cambridgeshire (TL 3151/7601). This was in advance of a proposed housing development. Each of the five trenches contained archaeological features, including enclosure ditches, gullies and pits, which range in date from Iron Age to post-medieval, and amongst these features was a gully for a possible roundhouse. There were also numerous undated features which are not thought to be modern. A single crouched human burial was found in the top of a narrow ditch, and this had tentatively been dated to the Roman period by the manner and location of the burial.
