North West Cambridge. An Archaeological Desk based Assessment
This Archaeological Desk Based Assessment was commissioned by the University of Cambridge's Estate Management and Building Service. It concerns a large area of land, c.120 hectares, to the north-west of Cambridge, centred on TL 4280/5990. This study is being produced as part of the proposed redevelopment of this land for student accommodation, University staff 'key worker' housing, teaching and research facilities and commercial research and development space. The study reveals a potential for archaeology of several periods, notably Roman, with known archaeology, specifically a Roman road running from the east along the northern edge of the area.
