Abstract

An archaeological evaluation was carried out by Cambridgeshire County Council's Archaeological Field Unit (CCC AFU) in response to a proposed development at land southwest of No. 10 Newgate Street, Doddington. Three trenches were excavated, revealing a probable medieval land division perpendicular to the road and a small number of associated features hinting at occupation nearby. A very large feature, perhaps a pond or channel and possibly natural in origin, occupies part of the northeast quarter of the site, and this was backfilled in early modern times. Very little archaeological evidence survives to provide a clear picture of the previous uses of this plot owing, at least in part to recent truncation and disturbance. It seems unlikely, however, that the plot was densely occupied in the medieval period.
