An archaeological desktop study was commissioned by Coyne Associates for an area of the A10 corridor, between Cambridge and Ely. The study outlines National and Local archaeological policies, with particular reference to road schemes. The topographical and historical background are described to provide a basis for evaluating the known archaeology of the area, which is presented in the gazetteer. The area includes a large number of archaeological sites, some of which are particularly sensitive to development. There are also seven scheduled ancient monuments in the area. The areas of local archaeological interest and the scheduled ancient monuments are described and specific recommendations given for them in the light of the policies for road schemes previously outlined. The A10 corridor is rich in archaeological sites and caution must be exercised when planning road improvements for the A10.
