The Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on land west of the Manor House, Manor View, Whittlesey, Cambridgeshire, in early April 2004. The work was commissioned by Mr J. D. Harris in advance of development of the site for a single dwelling, integral double garage, access road and accompanying service.
The investigation comprised three trenches within the proposed development area. All three trenches revealed significant quantities of archaeological features including walls, pits, post holes and ditches. Most features contained dating evidence ranging from the Anglo-Saxon to medieval periods. Evidence of a medieval metal working area was also identified. The evaluation also revealed a significant amount of soil had been brought in to the area, probably during the mid 20th century when a plant nursery occupied the present site. As a result the evaluation trenches were significantly deeper than anticipated.
