An archaeological evaluation was carried out at the former 'Techne' factory site, Hinxton Road, Duxford (TL 4810/4585) to inform the planning process in advance of the construction of thirty seven dwellings and associated works. The work was carried out by the archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council between 29th October and 6th November 2001.
A total of 12 Trenches were excavated, all contained archaeological features. A cluster of inhumations were observed, one of which produced pottery dating from the early Anglo-Saxon period. A series of ditches, pits and post holes and a possible roundhouse were observed some of which contained late prehistoric or Anglo-Saxon pottery. A curvilinear ditch in the south-west of the site contained Bronze Age pottery in its terminal end. The site appears to contain evidence for occupation in a number of periods, including the Bronze Age, and perhaps the Iron Age and Anglo Saxon/medieval periods.
