Between the 9th and 11th March 2019 Oxford Archaeology East undertook an archaeological evaluation on land to the rear of 9 to 17 Hawes Lane, Wicken, Cambridgeshire (centred TL 56404 71222).
A total of six trenches were excavated within the development area of c.0.6ha, located at the edge of a plateau of higher ground to the north-west of the village. These trenches revealed a fairly dense concentration of Late Iron Age to Early Romano-British archaeological features, including numerous pits and ditches indicative of settlement activity, along with a modern service trench and a possible pond.
The features, as well as the topsoil and subsoil overburden, yielded a fairly sizeable assemblage of finds, including 1.24kg of Late Iron Age to Middle Roman pottery (c.AD0- 150), animal bone (several items showing evidence of butchery or working), fired clay and modern ceramic building material.
Overall, the archaeological works have confirmed the presence of preserved archaeological remains across the entirety of the site.
