Archaeological work on a 1km pipeline to the west of Linton, Cambridgeshire, identified a number of new sites. A substantial Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age flint scatter was recorded and Possible Middle Iron Age occupation was identified. Further evidence for the presence of Roman buildings on the western outskirts of Linton were uncovered. A cobbled street surface was found to be an integral part of the earthworks representing the site of the deserted medieval village of Little Linton. Dating evidence recovered from the latter indicated that it had reached its present surviving form at some point during the 9th-11th centuries.
