Abstract

Archaeological recording during the excavation of foundation trenches for a new dwelling adjacent to No.64 Cambridge Road, Waterbeach (TL493651) revealed no direct evidence of archaeological deposits. The site may lie on the route of the Roman Car Dyke Canal (Sam 3), and the results are of interest because the natural Gault clay was not encountered within the trench (max. depth 1.1m), garden soil and sub-soil were encountered to a depth in excess of 1m and may indicate modern infilling of the depression formed by the canal. There is, however, no conclusive proof of the presence of the canal.
