Archaeological Investigation at the Ashwell Site, Union Lane/Scotland Road, Chesterton, Cambridge

Change log


Mackay, Duncan 


An open area excavation on land at the corner of Scotland Road and Union Lane, Chesterton, revealed non-continuous activity dating from the Early Iron Age through to the 16th century, with possible domestic occupation of the site in the 13th/14th centuries. In comparison to adjacent sites, and being on the periphery of Medieval settlement in Chesterton, the site was relatively late to develop in the 12th century, and quick to be abandoned in the 14th century.
