Abstract

On the 16thof March 2020, Oxford Archaeology East (OAE) conducted an archaeological investigation on land at 291 Hills Road in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire (centred TL 4663 5559) ahead of residential development. Two trial trenches were excavated. The site was devoid of archaeological remains. Trench 1 was completely blank while Trench 2 exposed a modern made ground layer underlying the topsoil,with patches of bioturbation, caused by tree roots, visible in the underlying natural geology. One modern feature, a shallow pit or hollow containing modern building material, was found sealed by the made ground at the northern end of the trench.
