Between 27th February 2023 and 3rd March 2023, Oxford Archaeology conducted an archaeological evaluation on two neighbouring residential development areas at Aragon Close and Sackville Close, Cambridge (TL 45352 61373 and TL 45294 61261). A total of eight 6m long trenches, which represented a 5% sample area of the overall site.
The evaluation revealed several ditches and pits in both investigation areas. Six of the ditches were on a north-east to south-west axis to suggest they were part of the same overall boundary ditch alignment, possibly a roadside ditch defining the route of Akeman Street. The dating evidence suggests activity on the site dates from the mid 2nd to late 4th century AD.
