Proposed College of West Anglia, March, Cambridgeshire: An Archaeological Evaluation.

Change log


Tabor, Jonathon 


An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cambridge Archaeological Unit on behalf of CgMs for College of West Anglia, in March, Cambridgeshire (TL 4206 9633), during November 2007. The evaluation comprised four components, 5x5m test pits, fieldwalking, 1x1m test pits, and trial trenching. The results of the 5x5m test pits provided a model of the palaeotopography and confirmed that c. 85% of the Project Development Area (PDA) was deep fen and of little archaeological potential. Further work concentrated on an area of 'high ground' in the east of the PDA where fieldwalking confirmed the presence of a previously recorded Bronze Age / later prehistoric flint scatter. With the exception of an undated ditch, exposed in two of the trial trenches, no further archaeological remains were encountered.
