An archaeological evaluation was undertaken at Long Road Sixth Form College, Cambridge to inform the planning process in advance of the construction of a new building. The work was carried out by staff of the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit between 25th September to 2nd October 2000.

A total of 6 trenches were excavated and although all contained archaeological features no artefactual evidence was recovered from any of the trenches despite thorough excavation. A series of ditches were observed which run northeast-southwest, east-west and north-south. These appear to be part of a co-axial field system. These features fit well within the immediate landscape of known linear ditches and enclosures, which are dated to the Iron Age and Romano-British periods.
