On 21st July 2004, the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on land at Hauxton County Primary School, Cambridgeshire. The investigation consisted of three trenches located in front of the current school entrance, prior to the construction of a new school hall and associated spaces.
The site was in an area of high archaeological potential located close to the historic core of the village of Hauxton.
A swampy waterlogged deposit was encountered overlying the natural gravels, which contained bottles and ceramics dating to the late 19th to early 20th century. Subsequent build up layers of modern soil (presumably imported to the site during construction of the school) were also encountered.
