Between 2nd September and 4th September, an archaeological evaluation was undertaken on 1.3 hectares of land immediately to the north-west of the modern village of Soham (TL 58677460), by staff of the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeology Unit. The project was commissioned by Cofton Ltd in advance of a proposed residential development and is part of larger evaluation work carried out in the are, notably land to the south of the subject site. The work was carried out according to a brief for archaeological evaluation issued by Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeology Office. The work was supervised on site by Spencer Cooper and the project was managed by Stephen Macaulay. The results of the evaluation revealed ditches of a post-medieval field system which relate to the draining of Soham Mere. No features or artefacts earlier than post-medieval were identified within the subject site.
