From the 27th to the 30th of August 2002 the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted a fieldwalking investigation of 51 hectares of ploughed arable land to the east of St Neots, Cambridgeshire. The report was commissioned by CPM Environmental Planning and Design on behalf of JJ Gallagher Ltd. This investigation was carried out following a desk-based assessment, (CPM 1998) and geophysical survey, (WYAS 2002) in order to add to the current level of information available relating to the character, date and possible extent of those archaeological remains present within the proposed development area.
The investigation revealed traces of a human presence in this area from the Neolithic to modern times, as well as a concentration of artefactual material within the south western quadrant of the study area indicative of settlement related activity dateable to the Romano-British period.
