During April 1997 a team from the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council carried out an evaluation excavation on the site of a proposed development at Tan yard, St Neots. Modern intrusive features, possibly dating to the nineteenth century, and archaeological features were noted. The archaeological features included a northeast-southwest running ditch and a shallow feature which was either a pit or the butt end of a ditch. Both of these contained locally made grey wares, some fine wares and a sherd of colour coated pottery all dated to around the 3rd century AD. They also contained quantities of animal bone and a fragment of Roman roof tile. No Saxon or medieval material was recovered during the excavation.
