This Desktop Assessment was undertaken by Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit as part of the requirement prior to residential development of a plot of land between 47 and 59 Hall Barn Road, Isleham (TL 6395 7385).
The development site comprises a rectangular area of 0.51 hectares to the east of Hall Barn Road. It is located to the south west of the medieval vill of Isleham.
The present study shows that the area lies within a rich archaeological landscape, being surrounded by sites of prehistoric and Roman date, albeit not in the immediate vicinity. Although no finds are known from the subject site itself, its archaeological potential can be considered moderate to high, with particular reference to the Roman period.
The area does not appear to have been affected by modern development or disturbance. The state of preservation of any archaeological remains and deposits that might be encountered during excavation should be good.
