Between 21st and 28th September 2009 OA East conducted an archaeological evaluation and excavation at 98-120 Wisbech Road, Littleport (TL 5592 8733) in advance of the construction of 12 flats and 8 houses with associated services and parking. Within the development area, six evaluation trenches were opened up, followed immediately by two open excavation areas.
A slight scatter of prehistoric flints were found across the site, suggesting Neolithic activity in the vicinity, but without any features being positively identified.
An agricultural field system containing several alignments and phases of activity with associated boundary ditches dating to the Roman period were uncovered.
