Abstract

On 6th May 2003 an archaeological investigation was carried out on land off St Mary's Court in the garden of No 60 Newtown by staff of the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council. The work was required as part of a planning condition placed on the construction of a single storey dwelling. The work involved the excavation of a 3m x 3m evaluation trench with the aid of a mechanical excavator. Deposits of approximately 1.2m in thickness were encountered overlying natural sand. The lower 0.4m of deposits contained small quantities of pottery dating from the late Saxon period (Thetford ware), and included evidence for flint surfaces and a single pit.
