In August 2003, archaeological material was potted in the spoil during renovation works at 68-70 Castle Street, Cambridge. The Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit was called in to do rescue excavation and recording of the archaeological deposits beneath the floors of the cellars. Two Roman features were observed, a ditch, roughly on the same alignment as the modern street, falling out of use in the mid 2nd century and a pit which was cutting it dated to the later 3rd century. The ditch is possibly a roadside ditch of the Roman road to Godmanchester, while the pit may represent the encroachment of the Roman roadside settlement already known in this area from previous excavation.
