In April 2002, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on 0.138ha of land at 31 Tunbridge Lane, Bottisham, Cambridgeshire (TL 5442/6092). This was in advance of a proposed housing development.

Two trenches were opened by machine and found to contain archaeological remains. The features located included ditches, both large and small, a gully, a pit and a post hole. Roman pottery of 2nd-4th century date was found across the site, but the majority came from a large ditch, which crossed Trench 1 running northeast-southwest. This substantial boundary had pottery, tile, building material, bone and glass scattered throughout the fills, and it may have a functional connection with other Roman settlement, a possible villa estate, found just to the south-east across Tunbridge Lane in 2000.
