In March 2009 Oxford Archaeology East undertook a desk based assessment to examine and compile the existing archaeological, historical and cartographic evidence relating the site of Neale Wade Community College, March, Cambridgeshire. The purpose of the study was to assess the potential for the presence of surviving archaeological remains ahead of redevelopment of the school site. The study area is located in the Town End part of March, south of the river Nene and the town centre. It lies on a narrow band of gravel (the line of the current B1101) which extends from the March island to the smaller Fen islands of Wimblington and Doddington to the south. The Cambridgeshire Historic Environment Record shows lists several entries in the immediate vicinity of the study area. These include, cropmark and aerial photographs, individual find spots and archaeological fieldwork including evaluations and excavations. There is good evidence that the study area lies in an area of high archaeological potential. Iron Age and Roman remains have been discovered along the route of the current B1101 for approximately 1.5km and the study area is located in the centre of these remains.
