Between the 11th and 15th of June 2012 and following a Geophysical survey carried out by Pete Masters of Cranfield university Oxford Archaeology along with pupils, parents and staff of Godmanchester Primary School excavated three trenches within the school field that lies adjacent to the modern B1044 and on the supposed route of the Roman Ermine Street. Romano-British rubbish pits and two post holes were noted in trench two and trench three produced evidence of redeposited gravel layers again dating to the Roman period. The gravel layers may be associated with either the Ermine Street or the Roman Cambridge road known as the Via Devana.
