Abstract

In June 2003, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on 4ha of land between Creek Road, Station Road and the railway sidings in March, Cambridgeshire (TL 4220 9765). This was in advance of a proposed housing development. Seventeen trenches were opened by machine, and of these nine contained archaeology. The total number of features was small and consisted largely of ditched of varying sizes, although two pits were also identified. No dateable finds were recovered from any feature. An alluvial sequence interrupted by a peat formation episode was observed in most of the trenches in Area 1, the southern part of the site, and the features were divided into those that pre or post-dated this inundation.
