Between the 11th of April and 30th of September 2001 an archaeological monitoring brief was undertaken within the centre of Huntingdon. The development consisted of a trench for a gas pipe in various locations within central Huntingdon. The work was undertaken by staff of the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit and commissioned by Transo.
A number of evaluations and excavations have been undertaken in close proximity to the route of the pipe trench. These evaluations and excavations have enhanced our understanding of the development of medieval Huntingdon. From the outset it was hoped that the observations from this project in combination with results from previous excavation, would provide us with a predictive deposit model for the archaeology of Huntingdon.
Unfortunately few significant archaeological deposits were encountered in over 800m of trenching. This is in the main because the trench appears to have been located in areas of existing services. Artefacts were recovered from trench 19 and trench 20. Victorian remains were encountered in trenches 3 and 4.
