Land Adjacent to 63 Church End, Church End, Cherry Hinton: An Archaeological Excavation
Excavations at land adjacent to 63 Church End, Cherry Hinton, revealed a major Early medieval settlement that was founded in the later 9th century AD and continued in use until the early 12th century AD. Occupation continued after this point, but on a much-reduced scale, until the early 14th century AD, when the level of activity declined even further. The main phase of late 9th to early 12th century AD occupation probably represents part of a manorial complex, while the later activity is interpreted as a peripheral area of the Medieval village. Small amounts of Prehistoric, Roman and Middle Saxon material indicate that the area was intermittently utilized for agriculture, but not intensively occupied, prior to the late 9th century AD.
