Between 2nd and 23rd November 2004 an archaeological evaluation was undertaken at Brigg's Farm, Thorney, Cambridgeshire (TF 2500 0050) by staff of the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council. The proposed development includes excavation of a reservoir, borrow pits, settlement lagoons, a processing plant for sand and gravel, an area for the temporary stockpiling of minerals during the course of the construction, and a haul roads to and from the site,
From the outset it was anticipated that a 'Flag Fen' type landscape would be uncovered. Recent archaeological investigations within the Thorney area have identified Bronze Age burial mounds and rectilinear field system.
The evaluation has contributed to the understanding of prehistory on the Thorney Island. It has revealed considerable Bronze Age activity in the form of a barrow, a well, a possible wooden trackway and field boundaries.
