Between 12th June and 18th July 2019 Oxford Archaeology East undertook an archaeological excavation at land to the rear of 9 to 17 Hawes Lane, Wicken, Cambridgeshire. The 0.6ha excavation uncovered part of an Early Romano-British farmstead consisted of smaller rectilinear enclosures overlain by larger boundary ditches. The Romano-British remains were truncated by a later episodes of medieval marl quarrying, post-medieval agricultural furrows, modern boundary ditches and a pond. This site is an important addition to the pattern of known Romano-British settlements on the Wicken ridge which has hitherto been solely brought to light through fieldwalking survey and recent excavation at its western end facing the River Cam.
