This report represents a statement on the excavation stage of the development by Croudace Limited (Royston) on land at Nos 16 & 20 Green Drift, Royston, Hertfordshire, TL 35305 41067. The excavation follows on from an evaluation carried out in June 2008 by Cam Arc (now OA East). The results of that evaluation were reported upon in an interim report (Fairburn June 2008).
The excavation produced archaeological features of three broad dates; prehistoric, Romano-British and post-medieval. A number of large tree throws of a prehistoric date were recorded;, these were truncated by two parallel Romano-British ditches containing an assemblage of pottery and other finds consistent with manuring of fields at some distance from the associated settlement.
The excavation showed an apparent discontinuation of use of the land between the Roman and post-medieval periods.
