In December 2008 Oxford Archaeology East conducted an archaeological evaluation and subsequent excavation on land adjacent to 52 Harlton Road, Little Eversden, Cambridgeshire (TL 3728 5285). The work was carried out on behalf of Beechdale Homes in advance of the construction of 10 affordable dwellings with access road, landscaping and services. At least two phases of activity were identified with secure dating for the second phase to the post-medieval period. Archaeological remains included two different alignments of parallel ditches representing agricultural activity and possible enclosure boundaries as well as a series of pits, a quarry and a well. These remains indicate the likely existence of a domestic area within close proximity to the development area. The excavated area, 15m x 77m, was stripped directly after the completion of the evaluation and represented an area within which the proposed buildings are to be constructed. Given the results of the evaluation this area was considered to be of high archaeological potential.
