Abstract

On the 18th April 2001 the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) undertook an archaeological evaluation on the site of 69 Mill Lane, Fordham (TL 311 7047). The work was carried out in connection with a proposed development of the site involving the construction of a single dwelling and associated ground works. A single 'L' shaped trench was excavated within the proposed building footprint in order to ascertain the presence or absence of archaeological remains. The subsequent investigation of the trench revealed two narrow ditches and the lowest course of a clunch wall. The only dating evidence was a single sherd of medieval pottery from one of the ditches and may relate to the medieval settlement located to the north.
