Between August and November 2014, Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) undertook an archaeological monitoring and recording exercise on a 200 hectare redevelopment of land to the north of Jerusalem Drove, Coveney, Cambridgeshire (TL 4656 8278). The monitoring concentrated on soil removal from an area approximately nine hectares in size ahead of the construction of a reservoir. Observation was also carried out on the excavation of a new open-ditch drain. The overall aim of the redevelopment is to create a wet grassland habitat area for bird species which have been affected by the deterioration of the Ouse Washes. During the archaeological monitoring no archaeological features or artefacts were recovered.
