In September 1996, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council (AFU) were contracted by Anglian Water Services Limited to conduct an archaeological evaluation along an easement for a proposed sewage line at Shingay-cum-Wendy, Cambridgeshire. Nine trenches totalling 220 metres in length were excavated within the project easement. A number of features derived from agricultural boundaries and use were encountered. These included a ditch, a possible ditch, ten furrows, and a post hole. One ditch contained sherds of St. Neot’s type wares suggesting that it was constructed in the late Saxon/early medieval period. The other features have all been interpreted to be associated with medieval/post-medieval cultivation. No features were identified which could be associated with the Roman and medieval/post-medieval settlements at the north-eastern and south-western, respectively, ends of the pipeline.
