In October 1998 the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit conducted a basic archaeological investigation in the burial ground of St. Margaret and All Saints Church, Houghton and Wyton. The investigation was designed to examine the potential disturbance to underlying archaeological remains caused by the construction of an extension during conversion of the redundant church into a dwelling. The extension footings revealed only modern disturbance, tree roots and the foundation of the existing building. Disarticulated human bone was recovered from the topsoil and returned to the parish for reburial.
