An Archaeological Desk Based Assessment of the Sidgwick Site, University of Cambridge, Cambridge



Change log


Hall, Andrew 


This Archaeological Desk Based Assessment was commissioned by Cambridge University Estates Management Services. It concerns the University's Sidgwick site, a major focus for Arts and Humanities Faculties. This report is being produced in advance of further development within this ‘campus’ and reveals a potential for archaeology of several periods, notably Roman, as well as Prehistoric and Saxon. During Medieval and Post-Medieval times, this area lay within the Cambridge West Fields, and was, therefore, agricultural land. Activities related to rural land management such as ploughing, gravel quarrying, and in addition the development of the site in the second half of the 20th century, may have implications for the survival of any earlier archaeology.
