Between the 16th and the 19th of May, OA East carried out an archaeological evaluation within the farmyard at Church Farm, Upwood, Cambridgeshire. A total of seven evaluation trenches were excavated and uncovered a series of pits and ditches.
A ditch located on the northern side of the site, parallel to Church Lane, contained finds dating to the 11th-13th centuries and probably represents the medieval roadside ditch. Also present were postholes containing pottery from the same period.
Two ditches located in the south-west corner of the site contained tile and brick from the late medieval or post-medieval periods. These were neither conclusively dated nor interpreted but could feasibly have had a temporary defensive use, potentially representing minor fortifications from the Civil War period.
