On the 3rd and 6th of August 2001 the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on land adjoining the north aisle of St. Mary's Church, Orton Waterville in advance of the construction of a new meeting hall and associated ground works. The aim of the intervention was to record and assess the nature of any archaeological evidence encountered before construction and hence to assess the potential for surviving remains. Given the presence of prehistoric features and artefacts, Roman settlement evidence together with Anglo-Saxon, medieval and post medieval occupation around the development area, particular attention was paid t the identification and interpretation of deposits and features in the context of what is a rich archaeological landscape. During the archaeological evaluation, evidence of fairly recent burials was observed, no positive evidence was recovered of early land use.
