Abstract

During August 2003 the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation at Roman Way, Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire (TL252 699) in advance of the construction of 60 houses. Seven trenches, totalling 450m in length were excavated. The evaluation revealed a range of (heavily truncated) archaeological features. These features consisted of pits, some of prehistoric date, and ditches of Roman and later origin. The relative paucity and abraded condition of finds from the Roman and later periods implies that the site occupied a peripheral location from the known settlement loci. Aerial photographs indicated that the site was located within the medieval field system around Godmanchester until recent times. The archaeological features on the site were heavily truncated and compacted by development work c.20 years ago. The development has also resulted in many areas of modern disturbance across the subject site.
