In December 1998 the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit carried out work in response to a brief for archaeological evaluation at Minerva Business Park, Alwalton (TL 1361 9616) following a planning application by Ruddle Wilkinson Limited. Initial documentary assessment considered cartographic, textual and aerial photographic evidence. The only known archaeological remains located on the site from documentary sources were traces of medieval ridge and furrow agriculture.
Following the documentary survey, intrusive evaluation was carried out to determine the presence and extent of surviving archaeological remains. Six trenches were excavated which revealed numerous features including a possible ring ditch with associated postholes, a quarry pit, gullies, and several other ditches, pits and postholes. Animal bone, Roman and middle Saxon pottery, a Niedermendig lava quern fragment and two late Roman coins were recovered from the site.
