Archaeological Excavations at Milton Recreation Ground, Milton, Cambridgeshire

Change log



This report presents the results of fieldwork mitigation in advance of a proposed housing development on the c. 0.5ha site of Milton Recreation Ground east of Cambridge Road (TL 475 623). It follows a desktop assessment and covers two-stages of work: initial evaluation rolled over into more extensive excavation, after on-site review by the County Archaeologist. The work was carried out on behalf of the Cambridge Housing Society and South Cambridgeshire District Council between the 20th April and 1st May 1998. The archaeology found at the site can be divided into two main areas: a concentration of pits and possible ditch at the eastern end (Area A) and a double ditch line visible as a cropmark at the western end (Area B). Isolated pits also occurred between these two areas. All the features have been attributed a later prehistoric date on the basis of morphology and associated finds (late Neolithic/Bronze Age).
