Abstract

Archaeological field evaluation by trial trenching was undertaken by a team from Cambridge Archaeological Unit on 4.6 ha of land at Edgerley Drain Road, Fengate, Peterborough (centred TL 2174 9985) in June 2004. It followed an initial investigation by aerial photographic survey and aimed to determine presence, absence, date, extent, state of preservation and significance of any subsoil archaeological features. The evaluation was commissioned by Barnack UK Ltd at the request of the Peterborough City Council Archaeological Officer. Three concentrations of archaeology were identified (Sites 1-3) dating from the Neolithic to the later Bronze Age. An extensive system of Bronze Age boundary ditches was traced across the site.
