Between the 17th and 22nd of June 2004, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council (AFU) conducted an archaeological evaluation at 6 Rectory Road, Bluntisham, Cambridgeshire (TL 3690 7452). The work was carried out at the request of Stuart Long on behalf of The Diocese of Ely in advance of a proposed housing development. The site lies close to the historic core of the village, north of Rectory Road. The proposed development covers an area of 0.7ha.
Trenches across the area revealed extensive remains associated with the later prehistoric/early Roman period in the northern half of the site. However, the presence of a Roman coin dated approximately to AD 260 suggests that the site was fairly long lived. The southern and eastern part of the site had been heavily disturbed in the post-medieval period.
