Between the 2nd of July 2001 and 4th September 2001, an archaeological evaluation was undertaken on 0.5 hectares of land off Stonald Road, Whittlesey, Peterborough (NGR TL 2655/9766) by staff of the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council. The work was carried out in advance of a proposed housing development. A 'U' shaped trench was placed across the north-western portion of the proposed development site to ascertain the presence or absence o archaeological remains. Besides the evidence for post-medieval furrows, no other archaeological features were uncovered. Lack of early archaeological evidence is likely to be due to the location of the development site away from the fen edge where activity has been recorded, and from the core of the medieval settlement, south of the development area. Trenches 2 and 3 were excavated in the southern part of the development area in order to locate the Roman road - Fen Causeway. Trench 2 revealed an undated post hole and Victorian remains were encountered in Trench 3. Lack of evidence from the present development site may suggest that the course of the Roman road lay further south to the projected line along Stonald Road.
