Between the 16th and the 30th of February 2012 Oxford Archaeology East were commissioned to evaluate an area of land adjacent to Somers road, Wisbech. This evaluation comprised of three trenches strategically located across the development. The investigation revealed three small ditches and three postholes. Trench 2 was opened to allow investigation of a larger steep sided ditch, which was deliberately backfilled in the late 17th/early18th century and would appear to post-dates the other ditches on site. Earlier activity is present on (or close to) the site, with later medieval pottery present, however this is residual in nature and is mixed with later post-medieval ceramics.
