Marleigh (Wing) Greenhouse Farm Area A

Change log


Bourne, Tom 


An archaeological excavation was carried out by the Cambridge Archaeological Unit at Greenhouse Farm, Newmarket Road, ahead of the Marleigh residential development. The work covered an area of 0.8ha and enveloped an area previously excavated by the Cambridge Archaeological Unit in 1998. The archaeological remains comprised two pit clusters associated with Early Neolithic Mildenhall ware, representing the earliest activity on site. The main focus of the excavation was on a small settlement dating to the Late Iron Age/Early Roman period, which comprised enclosures, a trackway and a well-complex. The Medieval and Post-Medieval periods were represented by furrows across the site, indicative of past agricultural regime.
