In April 2008 CAM ARC (now OA East) conducted an archaeological excavation in Papworth Everard, on the west side of the village between St. Peter's Church and Cow Brook. This followed an archaeological evaluation on the site conducted in October 2007. An area of approximately 1000 sq m was investigated in advance of a new Foul Sewer. The proposed development area varied in height from 35m OD at the north end of the excavation to 50m OD at the south end near St. Peter's Church. Evidence for Medieval settlement-related activity was uncovered, dating from the 12th to 14th Centuries, in the form of multi phase ditched enclosures with a cobbled surface / working area located immediately adjacent to Cow Brook. No later or post medieval deposits were encountered in association with these remains. A deep drainage feature was identified to the south of St. Peter's Church. This was sealed by substantial colluvial deposits resulting from medieval, and later, ploughing on higher land to the east.
