In May 2002, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on 0.33ha of land at 177 High Street, Offord Cluny, Cambridgeshire (TL 2200/6720). This was in advance of a proposed housing development.

Four trenches were opened by machine and all were found to contain archaeological remains. The features located included ditches, both large and small, gullies, pits, post holes and a pond or possible well. Three ditches were believed to have been of Bronze Age origin, while many of the other features were provisionally dated to the Saxo-Norman period, including seven post holes in a linear arrangement that may have formed part of a building. There is some uncertainty inherent in placing features into periods due to the lack of datable artefactual material recovered from the site.
