Between 28/01/15 and 30/01/15, Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) carried out an archaeological evaluation at land off Cox's Drove, Fulbourn, Cambridgeshire (TL 51694 56593). A total of 6 trenches were opened, covering 92 linear metres. Archaeological remains were uncovered in every trench. A possible roundhouse or hayrick, a number of postholes, pits and boundary ditches were excavated and recorded. A possible sunken feature building was also excavated. Furthermore a large solution hollow, containing residual Neolithic and Bronze Age worked flint along with Roman and Saxon pottery was located within the north-western corner of the site.
The amount of finds found on site were poor relative to the amount of archaeology recorded. A small assemblage of worked flint, Roman and Saxon pottery, fired clay and animal bone were recovered from the features. Environmental results, on the other hand, were good, with relatively large amounts of charred plant remains such as free threshing wheat being recovered from all samples.
