Between the 9th and 11th of July 2018 Oxford Archaeology East carried out an archaeological evaluation at 97 High Street Balsham, ahead of the proposed development of two dwellings.
Two trenches, one 10 x 2m and one 20 x 2m, were excavated within the footprints of the two proposed dwellings, as allowed by trees and still extant structures.
The first, shorter trench revealed two ditches of medieval date on a north-east to south-west alignment. These produced medieval pottery, fired clay and two iron nails.
The second trench revealed an undated gully and pit, from which only small fragments of animal bone were recovered.
