Abstract

In May 2002, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on 0.09ha of land at Ernulf Community College, Eynesbury, St Neots, Cambridgeshire (TL 1822/5885). This was in advance of proposed classroom extensions to the existing buildings. Three trenches were opened by machine and two were found to contain archaeological remains. A pit-like feature in Trench 1 was interpreted as a tree bole, possibly associated with Neolithic woodland clearance. A narrow ditch in Trench 2 may also belong to this period, but produced no finds to confirm this theory.
