An Evaluation of the Archaeology at Broad Street, Ely, Cambridgeshire



Change log


Alexander, Mary 


The Cambridge Archaeological Unit was commissioned by the Mills Whipp Partnership to undertake an archaeological evaluation on behalf of the East Cambridgeshire District Council on land due for re-development on the east side of Broad Street. The results of the evaluation confirmed predictions of continuous, and fairly intense activity over almost the whole of the sampled area from the present day to at least as early as the 14th century, and earlier in some areas. The preservation of remains was remarkably good over the whole area, and there was very little disturbance from later buildings. Evidence from the trenches set at some distance from Broad Street indicated that significant archaeological remains were not confined solely to the land immediately on the street frontage.
