Alexander, Mary 

Features excavated in the evaluation trenches at the former Sargeant's Garage, High Street, Chesterton indicate multi-period occupation central to Chesterton Village. Pre-historic features were not identified, but several worked flints were found in later pits and ditches. Roman activity was represented by a pit containing abraded Roman pottery sherds and middle Saxon pottery was found re-deposited in a Saxo-Norman pit. The site appears to have occupied from the Saxo-Norman period onwards, with the main focus of development along Union Lane. Sporadic pitting for gravel extraction took place behind the street frontage and a late 15th / early 16th century foundation was partially excavated.
