CAM ARC, Cambridgeshire County Council (formerly Archaeological Field Unit) undertook an archaeological excavation on land to the rear of the Old School, Feltwell in advance of residential development. The work was commissioned and funded by Goymour Homes and took place between August and October 2006. This work followed an evaluation of the same area in October 2004 by Archaeological Solutions Ltd (AS). The seven trenches identified the presence of features dating to the late Roman period, comprising mainly pits and ditches as well as three undated walls.
The excavation was conducted in five areas that varied from 56.34 square metres to 337.93 square metres, these areas were defined by the area of the proposed houses and roadway. Archaeology was encountered in all areas varying from moderately dense to very dense. The archaeology comprised primarily ditches, pits, gullies and structural remains forming boundaries, enclosures and buildings.
Occupation of the site commenced in the late 2nd or early 3rd century AD and continued to the end of the Roman period. The site was disused until the early medieval period with re-occupation in the 10th century, activity continued till the 12th century before the site again reverted to agricultural use.
