On February 18th 1999 the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambdridgeshire County Council carried out an archaeological evaluation of land adjacent to 17 Wellington Street, St Ives (TL314711). The work was commissioned by Ray Yerby before the construction of a domestic building. Test pits have revealed that archaeological deposits dating to the Saxo-Norman period or earlier survive at a depth of 1.4m and more below the current ground level.
This evidence may suggest that this part of the town was intensively occupied in pre-conquest period, which is at odds with the accepted model for St Ives' Development.
