Abstract

On the 22nd July 2005, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation within the area of a proposed new development at Stibbington Education Centre, Sibson-cum-Stibbington, Cambridgeshire. The development comprises an extension to the current Education Centre buildings and the work was undertaken in advance of planning. The area has a long association with Roman remains, and particularly Roman pottery kilns, and it was thought prudent to investigate the area prior to applying for full planning consent. A single trench was excavated, 15m in length. A single feature was recorded; a shallow, right-angled ditch with its main length aligned north-south. The ditch is dated to the first half of the 20th century. A few abraded Romano-British pottery sherds were recovered from the subsoil but there was no indication that pottery kilns, or any other significant Romano-British remains lay within the immediate vicinity.
