Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) undertook a watching brief on land to the south of Station Road, Barnack, Peterborough (NGR TF 08430 05501) ahead of the installation of a new sewage overflow pipe alongside an existing pipe. Works took place over three days – 27th-28th June and 5th July 2019 – and included the stripping of topsoil over the area of the easement and deeper excavation (through the subsoil and natural geology) along the line of the new pipe.
Monitoring of subsoil stripping exposed two ditches, probably representing post-medieval field boundaries, although neither feature contained any datable finds. Metal detecting of site produced a modern coil of wire, a plough tip (neither retained) and an 18th century tombac button.
