During 2007 Oxford Archaeology East (formerly CAMARC, Cambridgeshire County Council's Archaeological Field Unit) undertook an archaeological evaluation and excavation on the proposed route of the Winwick - Old Weston pipeline on behalf on Anglian Water. Archaeological evidence from the prehistoric to modern period was encountered during the course of the excavation. Previously unknown prehistoric and Iron Age field systems and settlements were identified and a known Roman road was investigated. The most extensive remains dated to the medieval and post-medieval periods; these were encountered to the south of Winwick. Evidence for a late Saxon/ early medieval building was revealed. Features of medieval and post medieval date were primarily related to boundary divisions and drainage, and were found to respect boundaries still visible in the landscape today. Excavation also revealed a row of small, poorly constructed 19th- century buildings.
