Between the 21st and 23rd February 2005 the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on land off Kingfisher Way, Hinchingbrooke Business Park, Hinchingbrooke, Huntingdon (TL 2227 7267) in advance of the construction of office blocks, access roads and ancillary services/structures. Five trenches (total length 219m) were excavated within the proposed area (1.4 hectares). All the trenches had to be stepped due to the recent dumping of clay overburden between 0.8m and 2.6m thick which covered the site. Only one late post-medieval boundary ditch which partly cut a colluvium hillwash layer was uncovered. It ran roughly north to south and parallel to the existing eastern boundary of the site. This layer, between 0.2 to 0.4m thick, sealed the natural terrace gravels across the site. The original topsoil from the site had been removed from the site presumably when the clay was deposited on the site in recent times.
