Between the 25th and 26th July 2016 Oxford Archaeology East carried out an archaeological evaluation on land at Marlborough School, Watling Street, St Albans, Hertfordshire. Four trenches totalling just under 35m in length were opened, three of these revealed a number of ditches and pits dating from the prehistoric to the modern period. A group of three features, recorded at the north-east end of trench 4 represented the remains of heavily truncated pits and the terminus of a ditch, the latter contained worked flint in its backfill. Two shallow ditches, in Trenches 3 and 4, had also been heavily truncated and all these features were sealed by a subsoil. Modern remains were represented by a possible ditch in Trench 2 and a series of service pipe trenches and concrete capped sump or shaft in Trenches 3 and 4. Pottery, ceramic building material and flint recovered from the subsoil deposit was dated to the prehistoric to post-medieval periods.
