Abstract

On the 4th of March 2020, Oxford Archaeology East(OAE) conducted an archaeological investigation in the back gardens of the residential property118 Mereside, Soham, Cambridgeshire (centred on TL 58709 73993) in advance of its redevelopment. Two trial trenches were excavated. The site was almost devoid of archaeological remains with only one possible Neolithic pit identified towards the north-western end of Trench 1, while archaeology was completely absent in Trench 2. The findings indicate a low level of prehistoric activity on the shoreline of the Soham Mere; a now drained prehistoric freshwater lake.
