During August and September 1997 an archaeological investigation was carried out at Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire, on the Roman Car Dyke Canal, at the point where it connected to the River Cam, near Clayhithe and the village of Horningsea. The Project was jointly funded by Cambridgeshire County Council, English Heritage and South Cambridgeshire District Council.
In addition to the canal, on its western bank, within 20m of the river, a Horningsea-style pottery kiln was discovered. The kiln survived in extremely good condition, with two other kilns nearby.
