An archaeological evaluation was carried out at Model Farm, Old Weston (TL 09830 77320) in order to inform the planning process. The work was carried out by the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council on the 3rd and 4th July 2002. Three trenches totalling 100m in length, giving a 5% sample, were located within the 3350m² of a proposed housing development. The aim of the intervention was to record and assess the nature of any archaeological evidence encountered prior to construction and hence to assess the potential for further surviving remains. Given the presence of Roman and Anglo-Saxon artefacts and the location of the deserted medieval village particular attention was paid to the identification and interpretation of deposits and features in the context of what seems to be a rich archaeological landscape. During the archaeological investigation, probable landscaping and modern disturbance were observed. No positive evidence was recovered of early land use.
