Between the 14th and 18th December 2020, Oxford Archaeology East undertook a trial trench evaluation, comprising five trenches on a small parcel of land to the north-east of 29 The Green, Great Staughton, St Neots, Cambridgeshire. The development area is cited for the erection of twelve residential dwellings with associated infrastructure and landscaping. Three ephemeral ditches were observed in Trench 1, closest to the road, adjacent to the north-western boundary of the site. These corresponded closely with the results of a geophysical survey conducted prior to the evaluation. The remaining trenches contained no archaeological features or deposits. A scattering of possible features within them was, upon investigation, found to be either root disturbance or natural discolouration of the superficial deposits. The site was notable only for its sterility. Not a single find was recovered from either the aforementioned features or the overlying soils.
