Abstract

An archaeological assessment was undertaken on the site of the proposed housing development on S t Peter's Street, Caxton. A contour survey was conducted to record Medieval agricultural earthworks. Machine trenches were positioned to investigate these earthworks and to reveal underlying archaeological features. Archaeological features included ditches, dated by pottery to the 11th-12th centuries. The abundance and nature of finds excavated from these ditches suggests that they represent property boundaries associated with Late Saxon/early medieval occupation of St Peter's Street.
