On the 19th and 20th August 2004 staff from the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on land to the north-west of Car Dyke and Eye Road, Peterborough (521331/301760). The aim of the investigation was to record and assess the nature of any archaeological evidence encountered and hence to assess the potential for surviving remains, given the subject sites location adjacent to the Roman Car Dyke Canal.
During the excavation of the five trenches and six test pits extensive post-medieval and modern disturbance in the form of quarrying activity was observed. This has potentially removed any evidence of early land use.
