Abstract

This archaeological desk based assessment was commissioned by Interserve Construction Ltd to assess the potential impact on any surviving archaeology of a proposed development at the Citylife House (Howard Mallett) site, Sturton Street, Cambridge (centred TL 4629 5869). Located to the east of the historic city centre, assessment of the archaeological, historical, aerial and cartographic evidence shows the site to be located within an area that was largely rural in character until the suburban expansion around Cambridge in the 18th and 19th centuries. Although within an area of known historical and architectural significance, dating from the 12th century AD to the present date, the known historical change in land use and building configuration adjacent to and including the PDA would indicate a low probability of surviving archaeology being encountered that predates the 19th century.
