In June and September 1996 the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council carried out two phases of archaeological work within an L-shaped plot of land of about 0.4 ha, fronting onto the High Street in Great Wilbraham on the south side of the village, near Frog End (TL 547 572). Both phases of work were funded by Lovell Partnerships (Southern) Ltd.

Air photo and historical evidence gave no indication of any activity other than arable farming on the site, which is not currently under cultivation. However, features of various periods were discovered, including: Roman or post-Roman field boundaries and ditch sections/elongated pits, some of which cut though an earlier buried soil and some of which were sealed by later subsoil; a medieval activity area consisting of a central pit with four surrounding postholes; and a variety of post-medieval features including clunch and yellow brick land drains, soakaways, a ditch, pits and postholes.
