Between 30th September and 15th October 2010 Oxford Archaeology East carried out an archaeological evaluation, field walking and bucket sampling on land to the North of a lime quarry at Dimmock's Cote, Wicken, Cambridgeshire. This revealed evidence of Early Iron Age occupation, in the form of post holes. Several Middle Iron Age pits were also recorded. Alongside this possible Early Medieval structures were identified. In addition traces Medieval and Post-Medieval ridge and furrow cultivation and headlands were excavated. Two further postholes may also date to this Medieval phase of activity.
