An evaluation excavation, commisioned by Smit's ore on behalf of the Church Commissioners, was undertaken at The Parks, Godmanchester. A series of Roman period burials were identified along with a number of second and third century pits and ditches containing domestic refuse and enclosure with an adjacent droveway. A Roman gravel quarry and Medieval ploughsoil were also identified, as was a preserved series of ridges and furrows resulting from Medieval agricultural activities. A foundation trench for a masony building of probable Roman date was also identified.
