The Archaeological Field Unit, Cambridgeshire County Council, was contracted by Anglian Water Services Ltd to conduct an archaeological desktop assessment for the Wing to Peterborough Trunk Main. Reviews of the relevant archaeological, cartographic, geological/geomorphological and historic materials were undertaken. The assessment and replotting of aerial photographs were undertaken by Air Photo Services Ltd.
The desktop assessment has identified a number of sites from a range of periods which are likely to be impacted by the proposed pipeline easement. A number of areas of potential impact have also been identified in which it is probable that further as yet undocumented archaeological remains will be encountered. Based on these findings, a number of recommendations have been made for the evaluation phase prior to the commencement of construction.
