Between the 7th and the 14th September 2005 the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council carried out an archaeological investigation at Barleyfield, The Chantry, Fulbourn, Cambridgeshire. The work was conducted in advance of development of the land for housing.
Three trenches were excavated and well-preserved but slightly truncated features were found in all of them. The greatest density of features was found in Trench 3 along the northern edge of the site. Remains from excavated features suggest activity on the site from prehistory through to the present day. The majority of features, however, date to the medieval period, and perhaps to the 13th and 14th centuries in particular.
Artefact densities were generally average although some features produced significant amounts of butchered bone. Environmental preservation was good but the density of the cereal grains was quite low for agriculturally-based occupation features.
