Excavations at the Cherry Hinton Ring Ditches, Fulbourn Road, Cambridge.

Change log


White, Lee 


An archaeological excavation was commissioned by Churchmanor Estates Company p.l.c. on land south of Fulbourn Road, Cherry Hinton, Cambridge, prior to the site being developed as a research park. The programme of excavation was based on the results of the archaeological assessment carried out by the Cambridge Archaeological Unit (CAU) in 1994. The excavation was completed between 2 June and 4 July 1997 by a team of professional archaeologists, directed by the author. The excavation area was centred over three ring-ditches, Monuments I-III, known from aerial photographic evidence and located during the evaluation phase in 1994. The primary activity was the construction, probably during the Middle Bronze Age, of the ring-ditches. If they were not constructed contiguously, then they were built fairly rapidly one after the other given that each retains its own "space".
