Between the 4th and the 5th of August 2008 Oxford Archaeology East undertook an archaeological evaluation at Bottisham village college, Cambridgeshire in advance of the construction of a new school building. This evaluation involved the excavation of a T shaped trial trench. The SW – NE aligned arm was 14m long, the NW – SE aligned arm was 18m long. Both were 1.8m wide.
The evaluation did not reveal any archaeological features, finds or deposits and appeared to indicate that the area had never been subject to any significant, surviving human archaeological activity.
The underlying solid geology was chalk. This was heavily scarred with palaeochannels, indicating an ancient periglacial location for the site.
