An archaeological evaluation was carried out on Plot 5 Norman Way Industrial Estate, Over, Cambridgeshire (TL 3790 6930) between 27th and 31st July 2009. Three trenches were located within the proposed development area. Archaeological features and deposits dating to the Roman period were located across the development area but were concentrated in the northernmost trench where at least two phases of activity were recorded interrupted by an episode of flooding. The pottery assemblage from features in the northern half of the site are of particular interest and indicate settlement in the near vicinity. Deposits of charred seeds and other plant remains were found in abundance and are evidence that arable farming and associated primary crop processing were taking place on the site or very close by.
