Abstract

Between the 25th of September and the 1st of October 2017 Oxford Archaeology East (OAE) carried out an excavation at the site of a well preserved Iron Age/Roman farmstead in a field to the south of Cambourne Village College (centred on National Grid Reference TL 3083 5976).
Three small trenches were excavated, which revealed a sequence of activity spanning the Middle Iron Age to later Roman periods within a discrete, enclosed settlement. The archaeological remains encountered, and their associated finds assemblages, are typical of those from other relatively low-status farming settlements belonging to this period from across the western claylands of Cambridgeshire.
