Change log


Timberlake, Simon 


An archaeological watching brief was carried out during the excavation of eight geotechnical test-pits by RSA Geotechnics Ltd. on land destined for the construction of the new Ely Leisure Centre. Seven of the 0.5m x 3m wide machine cut slots were located in the field to the west of the A10/B1411 roundabout. Previous evaluation had revealed evidence for Middle Saxon occupation with a background of Iron Age and Romano-British activity.
