Between 27th and 31st March 2023 Oxford Archaeology East carried out trial trenching at Digital Park, Station Road, Longstanton (TL 3977 6803). This work was commissioned by Middlereach Ltd. as a condition of planning consent required by Cambridgeshire County Council.
Archaeological remains were identified in six of the 13 excavated trenches, including eight furrows, six lengths of linear ditch, one curvilinear feature, one pit and one post hole. Although no dating evidence was recovered from any of these features, some of the ditches recorded during the evaluation are likely to relate to the extensive later prehistoric and Roman remains previously uncovered in the environs of the site. In particular it seems probable that a concentration of archaeological remains revealed along the eastern site boundary, fronting on to Station Road, supports evidence from previous investigations for the presence of an earlier trackway, potentially originating in the Roman period, following the same alignment of the later road.
