Between 30th May and 1st June 2012 Oxford Archaeology East conducted an
archaeological evaluation on land at Carbon Challenge Site, Glebe Court, Fletton,
Peterborough in advance of a residential development (TL 195 978). Eleven
evaluation trenches totalling nearly 300m in length were excavated across the
southern part of a c.7.4ha site. These revealed modern deposits with the earliest
feature comprising a ditch backfilled in c.AD 1800. Modern disturbances across the
site related to its former use as a railway sidings and subsequent industrial use from
the mid 20th century. No old ground surfaces were identified and the natural was
truncated and directly overlain by modern layers
