On the 5th of June 2017 Oxford Archaeology East carried out an archaeological evaluation on land adjacent to 41 Stretham Road, Wilburton, Cambridgeshire (TL 4905 7498). A total of three 19m trial trenches were excavated during the evaluation. Trenches 1 and 2 contained no archaeological features. Trench 3 contained two parallel boundary ditches, orientated east to west and spaced c. 3m apart. The only dating evidence was a single sherd of Early Anglo-Saxon pottery (c. AD 450 – 650) from the southern ditch. The pottery is likely to be a residual find while the ditch itself may be post-medieval in date, possibly part of the pre-enclosure landscape.
