Following a request from Archstone Developments to observe groundwork at River Mill, School Lane, Eaton Socon, the author visited the site on 31st July 2000. The request was made in order to fulfil an Archaeological Condition. Archaeological evaluation had been carried out on the site (Roberts 1997) in response to a Design Brief for an Archaeological Evaluation, issued by the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeology Section on July 29, 1997. The evaluation revealed ditches containing sherds of medieval pottery, dated between 900-1200, but much of the site had been heavily disturbed by later activity. The geological sequence was determined, in boreholes by Southern Testing Laboratories Ltd. The northern part of the site was not available for evaluation in 1997 as it was covered by Atcost warehouses. A new Brief for Archaeological work had been issued by the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeology Officer for further evaluation trenches (up to 5% sample of the site) in the development area. The nature of the ground works and the level of modern disturbance made it impossible to see any evidence of archaeological remains.
