Between the 21st and 28th January 2019, Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) conducted an archaeological evaluation at Buxhall Farm, on land east of Glebe Way, Histon (centred TL 4423 6433) ahead of an application for construction of a new primary school at the site. A total of seven 50m-long trenches were excavated. Four of these trenches revealed dispersed linear archaeological features, and a further two trenches uncovered a series of agricultural furrows.
The western part of the site was characterised by a total of six agricultural furrows on a west-north-west to east-south-east alignment. These lay perpendicular to a recent boundary ditch (40) shown on the previous geophysical survey undertaken at the site along its eastern boundary.
A total of four ditches were uncovered in the eastern part of the site on north- south and east-west alignments that were not identified by the geophysical survey. The small amount of finds and environmental remains recovered from these features suggest a post-medieval or early modern origin.
