An archaeological evaluation was carried out on Land North of Estover Road, March, Cambridgeshire (TL 4251 9813). The fieldwork took place between the 20th and 28th October 2014. A total of fifteen trenches were excavated within the proposed development area, targeting archaeological features suggested from an aerial photograph survey and a geophysical survey. Several ditches and possible settlement features tentatively dated to the Roman period were present in the west and the south of the site. The settlement features included a ring-ditch towards the centre of the site that is suggested to be a roundhouse. In the western part of the site, a concentration of east to west aligned enclosure ditches and related settlement features dating to the medieval period may be indicative of possible tofts. A curvilinear ditch in the western part of the site enclosed an area of buried soil that was possibly the result of an occupation horizon.
