Change log
Standring, Robin 

This report presents the results of archaeological monitoring carried out by the Cambridge Archaeological Unit on 27th August 2008, at Fengate (former CAU Co-op site adjacent to Elliott site) on behalf of Atkins as part of a Geotechnical test pit survey associated with the proposed development of a Waste Management Facility. The site was located on the eastern industrial edge of the city of Peterborough, lying upon First Terrace Nene gravels. Whilst excavations revealed no positive archaeological features, the archaeological potential of the area was confirmed by the observation of a sealed palaeosol deposit beneath previously recognised and securely dated strata.
