Abstract

On the 25th and 26th July the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit undertook an Archaeological Monitoring and Recording Brief at Kneesworth Street, Royston (TL 357 408). The development consisted of a pipe trench for a gas pipe in Kneesworth Street. The pipe trench was located in an archaeologically sensitive area with a number of standing buildings relating to King James' Hunting Palace. It was hoped this project might aid understanding of the Palace plan. The project was commissioned by Transco plc. The observation was conducted through deposits associated with the construction of the present road. One of these deposits may be associated with the destruction of the 17th century palace buildings which extended within the development area.
