A magnetic susceptibility survey was carried out over an area of land at Milton, Cambridge which was due to be turned into a waste disposal tip. The survey area covered just over 6 hectares and consisted of 177 samples being taken on a twenty metre grid. The soil was then processed and the magnetic susceptibility reading of each sample was taken. Areas of high readings were identified and located on the ground ready for additional archaeological assessments in the form of further geophysical work and a trenching evaluation. Certain areas of enhanced readings were positively identified as being the result of Iron Age/Romano-British occupation areas.
