On the 30th of June 2005, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation within the area of a proposed development at Newnham Croft Primary School, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire. The development comprises an extension to the playground and the construction of an all-weather sports pitch.

Two trenches were excavated, totalling thirty-seven metres in length. A single feature was recorded; a shallow, undated ditch aligned northeast-southwest.

Datable artefactual material was recovered from the topsoil only - a few very heavily abraded Romano-British pottery sherds and a larger quantity of 17th to 20th century material including clay pipes, pottery, nails, a gun flint and objects relating to the more recent land-use as school grounds.
