3 Sylvester Road, Robinson College, Cambridge: An Archaeological Evaluation

Change log



Between the 7th-13th April, a team from the Cambridge Archaeological Unit (CAU) undertook a field evaluation by trial trenching and test pitting at 3 Sylvester Road, Cambridge (TL 54364 25836). The programme of works was conducted on behalf of Robinson College in anticipation of the construction of a new Graduate accommodation building and related services. Lying immediately adjacent to the projected line of Roman Akeman Street, no Roman features or finds were retrieved from the trenches. The recovered material was exclusively post-medieval in date, deriving from the ‘garden soil’ topsoil and subsoil. No archaeological features were uncovered.
