An archaeological evaluation was carried out at Maltmas Drove, Friday Bridge, Elm (TL 4640 0450) to inform the planning process in advance of the construction of domestic dwellings and associated works. The work was carried out by the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council between 7th and 10th January 2002.
A total of six trenches were excavated, five contained archaeological features. These were all ditches, which produced no dating material. Parallel ditches of the type encountered on the site are known in this area and are referred to as dielands or darlands, agricultural drainage features in use from the medieval period through the post-medieval period.
