Between the 14th and 15th of November 2000, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on land at 507-509 Coldham's Lane, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire (TL4860/5750). The work was commissioned by Barbar Casanovas Ruffles on behalf of Semitool Europe Ltd.
Four trenches with a total length of 160m were opened, constituting a 5% sample of the development area. Archaeological features were found in the two trenches nearest to Coldham's Lane, and these consisted of ditches, gullies and a pit. The only dating evidence recovered was a handful of heavily abraded Roman pottery sherds which came from the pit in Trench 1. A single sherd of medieval pottery was recovered from the upper fill of the same pit, a possible sealing deposit.
