Between 20th-24th October 2000, an archaeological evaluation was undertaken on land off High street and Clay Street (St. Andrew's House), Soham, Cambridgeshire (TL 593 731), by staff of the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit. The work was carried out to satisfy planning conditions in advance of the development of the land.

Four phases of activity/occupation were identified, Prehistoric, Late Saxon to Norman, medieval and post-medieval. Prehistoric activity was represented by a shallow ditch that produced Bronze Age flint debitage. Late Saxon evidence emerged from a boundary ditch which may have represented the rear boundary of properties flanking High Street. The medieval period (13th-16th centuries) is represented by quarrying, post holes, slots and ditches, the later of which may have represented property boundaries.
