Abstract

The Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council carried out an archaeological recording brief during the excavation of foundations for erection of a wooden structure at the Farmland Museum at Denny Abbey, Cambridgeshire. The archaeological importance of the site is set out in a recording brief carried out in the provision of the Scheduled Monument Consent, provided by the secretary of State for National Heritage under section 2 of the 1979 Act with the conditions for archaeologists to observe and record any archaeological features revealed. The site was visited by the AFU on the afternoon of the 9th December 1997, once all the foundations had been opened. The foundation trenches were inspected and photographed and the spoil was visually scanned. The archaeological investigation did not discover any archaeological remains with the trenches. The area appeared to have been disturbed during the 19th and 20th centuries by service trenching.
