Oxford Archaeology undertook a field evaluation at Cotton Farm, Offord D’Arcy, Cambridgeshire (NGR TL 233 641) on behalf of CgMs Consulting. A small quantity of Roman pottery was recovered from the surface of the ploughsoil to the immediate west of Trenches 7 and 8. This seems most likely to have derived from field manuring. A small assemblage of late Saxon pottery recovered from the same area may indicate contemporary activity within the vicinity although evidence of this was absent from the trenches. Ditches were recorded that correspond in position and orientation with field boundaries recorded on the 1st Edition 6” Ordnance Survey map of 1891, and are likely to have defined boundaries established during the period of Inclosure.
