Between the 24th of April and 3rd of May 2017 Oxford Archaeology East carried out an archaeological evaluation on land to the north of 66-100 Thrapston Road, Brampton, Cambridgeshire (TL 2109 7127).
A total of six 30m trial trenches were excavated to target features identified by geophysical survey. The findings in Trenches 4 and 5 confirmed the presence of a ring ditch identified in the geophysics, possibly a ploughed out Bronze Age barrow measuring 27m in diameter; no dating was recovered from the ditch itself. Early Roman and undated ditches were identified in the area around the ring ditch.
In the western half of the site there was a concentration of ditches in Trenches 1 and 2. The majority of ditches in Trench 1 contained handmade Middle Iron Age-type ceramics including Scored Wares of the East Midlands tradition. A large ditch in Trench 2 was dated as Early Roman.
