During May 1997 the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council carried out an evaluation excavation on the site of the proposed residential development at Camel Road, Littleport. The work was commissioned by Construct Reason Limited. Two trenches revealed ditches and gullies containing a considerable quantity of Roman pottery. The frequency of features and the specific nature of the ceramic and faunal assemblages imply domestic and other activities related to the proximity of the Old Croft River.
