Archaeological recording was carried out during the excavation of a service trench associated with development at St Mary Magdalene Church, Ickleton. The trench was located along the south side of the present chancel, extending from the east wall of the south transept to the gate on the eastern boundary of the churchyard.
Disarticulated human remains were found to be concentrated within the western half of the trench within disturbed top and subsoil. In addition, four in-situ burials were recorded along the length of the trench, at depths varying between 0.60m and 0.80m below present day ground surface. Juveniles and infants formed a high proportion of all recovered human material. All in-situ burials were left undisturbed whilst disarticulated remains were recovered and then re-buried on site.
In addition a single fragment of St Neots Ware was recovered from close to the base of the foundations of the east wall of the south chancel.
