An excavation was conducted during August 2003 by the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council at Newton County Primary School, Eltisley, Cambridgeshire (TL 2724 5951) in advance of the construction of a school extension. Area excavation followed on from an initial small evaluation trench (Atkins 2003).
An area measuring 14.5m by 10m was investigated, producing evidence for a possible Roman field system and Late Saxon occupation consisting of ditches and pits. Direct occupation within the excavation area appears to have ceased by the 12th to 13th century when the area reverted to arable agriculture.
