Between the 10th and the 15th November 2021, Oxford Archaeology East conducted an archaeological evaluation at land off Newmarket Road, Burwell (TL 59265 66543). A total of five 50m long trenches and four 30m long trenches were excavated within the development area. The trenching formed part of a larger programme of mitigation which commenced in April 2021 and revealed evidence of a large Late Bronze Age settlement site composed of numerous discrete pits and post-built structures.
Three of the trenches contained archaeological remains, with features comprising a small, undated pit in Trench 56; a small, undated pit in Trench 57; and two possible ditch terminals in Trench 59. The aim of the evaluation was to define the extent of the Late Bronze Age settlement excavated immediately to the west. The trenching demonstrated that the settlement does not extend beyond the limits of the main excavation area.
