On the 14th, 15th and 22nd of September 2000 the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council undertook an archaeological evaluation of the site of 'Marshall's Garage', Peterborough (TL 1900 9797). The Work was carried out in connection with a proposed development of the site involving the construction of a number of dwellings.
Four trenches were excavated in order to ascertain the presence or absence of archaeological remains. The subsequent investigation of the trenches revealed a series of post holes and a single ditch. The only dating evidence was a piece of clay pipe stem from a post hole, and it is possible that these features therefore relate to fairground structures. Circumstantial evidence, however, suggests the ditch may be Prehistoric, and therefore possible that the post holes are also of early origin. A palaeochannel crosses part of the site and may also be connected with Prehistoric activity.
