Abstract

Between the 29th June and 3rd July 2020, Oxford Archaeology East undertook an archaeological evaluation at land off Station Road, Isleham, Cambridgeshire. A total of seven trenches were excavated on the 1.82ha site. Very few archaeological features were identified, with only two ditches and 10 post holes being uncovered in the northern half of the field. These features are potentially related to the structures and fence lines of possible Late Anglo-Saxon/medieval date and post-medieval industrial activity identified during a previous excavation to the immediate north of the site. Artefact retrieval was particularly poor, with only one shard of glass, three sherds of pottery and two pieces of ceramic building material having been recovered, ranging in date to between the Roman and modern periods. The features dated to the modern period were probably associated with the site’s previous use as allotment gardens.
