Change log


McFayden, Lesley 


Archaeological investigations at Eyebury Quarry, Cambridgeshire were carried out between the 23rd November 1998 and the 22nd February 1999, prior to further mineral extraction within the quarry. The work was undertaken by the Cambridge Archaeological Unit. The site, centred at TF 237021, covers an area of 9.41 ha. (approximately rectangular in shape, oriented on a north-south axis) in a field lying to the north-east of Tanholt Farm. The principle aim of this report is to provide an assessment of the stratigraphic, artefactual and environmental data from the archaeological excavations at Eye Quarry, Peterborough in terms of their potential for analysis. The various components of the site archive have been evaluated by the author of this report and qualified specialists. A general summary of the fieldwork results, integrated with the specialists findings is given in the main body of the report and followed by a statement of the potential and recommendation for analysis.
