Between October 13th and 15th 2004 an archaeological evaluation was undertaken at 8 Market St, Soham Cambridgeshire (TL 5942 7326) by staff of the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council. The proposed development includes the construction of four townhouses with parking and services following the demolition of an existing garage. The project was commissioned by ANS Development. A brief was issued by Kasia Gdanien (Planning application number E/03/00845) of the Archaeology Office, Cambridgeshire County Council.

A single trench was located to evaluate the archaeological potential of the site. Evidence for a Late Saxon building was encountered in the form of a beamslot and a post hole. Subsequently a property boundary was defined and re-established in the 12th to 13th centuries by intercutting ditches. Large pits were dug at about the same time.
