This study examines the archaeological potential of land at Hinxton Riverside (TL 500 443), and the potential impact of development proposals. The proposed development area covers c 20 hectares in the parishes of Hinxton and Ickleton, to the south of the Wellcome Trust Campus at Hinxton Hall.

The Site has great potential for archaeological remains, in particular the late prehistoric, Roman, and Saxon periods. Evidence for settlement from these periods has been found along the valley of the Cam in close proximity to the study area.

Cropmarks of enclosures, ditches and trackways have been located within the study area. These may indicate areas of settlement.

The Icknield Way forms the southern boundary of the site, and the area where the route crosses the River Cam has potential for remains of pre-historic to post medieval date.
