Abstract

In September 1999 the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County COuncil conducted an archaeological evaluation on land adjacent to Newark Road, Peterborough in advance of the construction of a warehouse/office complex. The aim of the intervention was to record and assess the nature of any archaeological evidence encountered prior to ground works and hence to assess the potential for surviving remains. Given the presence of a known Neolithic/Bronze Age settlement to the south of the development area, together with well-preserved field-systems and scatters of lithic artefacts and pottery to the north-west, particular attention was paid to the identification and interpretation of deposits (namely buried soils) and features in the context of what seems to have been rich prehistoric landscape near the Fen Edge. During the archaeological investigation, sequences of levelling and modern disturbance were observed. However, no positive evidence was recovered of early land use.
