Abstract

This archaeological desk based assessment was commissioned by Terence O’Rouke Ltd on behalf of the Marshall Group to assess the potential impact of a proposed development on c. 5.9ha of land north of Cherry Hinton (TL 49170 57513). Evaluation of the archaeological, historical and cartographic evidence shows the proposed development area to be located within an area of known archaeological finds and features dating from the prehistoric period to the post-Medieval period and close to the Anglo-Saxon cemetery and early Medieval settlement of Cherry Hinton. Geophysical survey of the proposed development area revealed the presence of at least one prehistoric ring ditch and probable later prehistoric enclosures and other potential archaeological features.
