Archaeological evaluation and excavation was carried out by the Archaeological Field Unit in the grounds on 90 Glebe Road, Cambridge in April and July 2000. The work was carried out on behalf of Berkeley Homes (Eastern) Limited.
Six trenches were placed within the proposed development area. Trench 5 contained a small number of archaeological features of Middle Iron Age date. The remaining trenches all contained ditches, some of which were dated by finds to the post-medieval period although a number contained no dating evidence. These latter features may be inferred as post-medieval based upon their alignments.
In July four trenches were positioned to the west of the evaluation trench 5 in order to investigate for the presence of continued archaeological remains in this area. Four small pits or post holes and a narrow, shallow ditch were exposed in the trenches, but although all the features were excavated no finds were present. The features were all sealed beneath a layer of sub soil and may be assumed to belong with the same phase of possibly Iron Age activity discovered in trench 5 during the first phase of work.
The middle Iron Age activity may continue beyond the impact area of the development to the south and west but would appear to very sparsely scattered.
