In October 2015, a team from Oxford Archaeology East excavated three evaluation trenches at the former Travis Perkins site, 12-13 Ermine Street, Huntingdon (TL 2350 7222; including the site of Number 11 Ermine Street).
A number of pits and ditches of varying sizes dating from the 12th to 14th Centuries were revealed. A later medieval or post-medieval cultivation soil overlay these. No evidence was found relating to the medieval St Andrew's Church, thought to have stood nearby. The features represent a continuation of the settlement recorded
immediately to the south at the Town Centre Link Road site (now Edison Bell Way).
Features were sealed by the cultivation soil which was in places truncated to varying degrees by later activity.
Two 19th century wells were encountered, one back-filled, the other still bearing water. Other 19th century features includes a number of house floors and foundations as well as garden walls, outbuildings and a path of mid 19th century
