Change log


Middleton, Elizabeth 


Archaeological investigations were undertaken by the Cambridge Archaeological Unit (CAU) at East Cambs District Leisure Centre site situated on Downham Road, Ely. The work was carried out over the course of four months between May 2016 and September 2016, and was a continuation of excavations undertaken previously by the CAU at this site. The investigation area, comprising excavations in two almost contiguous areas (Area 3 and Area 4) and totalling 2.26ha, was machine stripped revealing archaeology ranging in date from the Late Bronze Age through to the Post-Medieval period, including Iron Age pit clusters, Early Roman planting beds and a multi-phase enclosure system with several post- and beam-slot built ancillary structures dating to the Middle Saxon period.
