Proposed site of Cambridge Crown Court, East Road, Cambridge: An Archaeological Desktop Assessment
This Archaeological Desktop Assessment was commissioned by John Mowlem & Co. It concerns an area of c. 0.26 of a hectare adjacent to MacKay's Ironmongers, East Road, Cambridge (TL 4610/5860). This study is being produced in advance of the redevelopment of this land as the site of the new Cambridge Crown Court. The Cambridge Archaeological Unit has been appointed the to carry out a desktop assessment on behalf of the client to collate and assess information relating to the site's archaeological potential. The study reveals a potential for archaeology of several periods, notably Medieval, as it lies just to the south of the village and monastic site of Barnwell.
