In December 2008 Oxford Archaeology East conducted an archaeological
evaluation and subsequent excavation on land adjacent to 52 Harlton Road, Little
Eversden, Cambridgeshire (TL 3728 5285). The work was carried out on behalf of
Beechdale Homes in advance of the construction of 10 affordable dwellings with
access road, landscaping and services.
At least two phases of activity were identified with secure dating for the second
phase to the post-medieval period. Archaeological remains included two different
alignments of parallel ditches representing agricultural activity and possible
enclosure boundaries as well as a series of pits, a quarry and a well. These
remains indicate the likely existence of a domestic area within close proximity to the
development area.
The excavated area, 15m x 77m, was stripped directly after the completion of the
evaluation and represented an area within which the proposed buildings are to be
constructed. Given the results of the evaluation this area was considered to be of
high archaeological potential.
