Archaeological observation has been carried out at 36b St John's Road, Ely, Cambridgeshire (TL 5337/8024) during the construction of nine dwellings and associated garages. The work was carried by the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council between 11th June and 19th December 2001.
An archaeological evaluation was conducted on the site during November 2000, and this revealed the presence of Late Iron Age and post-medieval remains.
All service trenches were examined for the presence of archaeological features, particularly where they crossed the line of the evaluation trenches. A ditch and two pits were observed, the former of which produced pottery dating from the early Roman period. These features, together with other recent finds nearby at West End and Chiefs Street, add further to the emerging picture of Roman Ely, of which little is currently known.
