Abstract:
In October 2013 Britannia Archaeology Ltd (BA) undertook an archaeological trial trench evaluation on land south of Phoenix House, Westry, Cambridgeshire (NGR 54009 29843) in advance of the residential development of the site. The evaluation revealed four potential phases of activity all dating to the post-medieval and modern periods. These comprised a recent phase of dumping of imported waste soil and material on to the former ground surface in the eastern half of the site, a second phase associated with the demolition of the burnt out rectory building, a phase of occupation corresponding with the rectory and finally the earliest phase associated with potential agricultural activity. A rough brick surface (1006) was recorded towards the south of the site and may have been a path or garden feature associated with the rectory or slightly earlier. A brick sample dated to between the 17th and 19th century AD. Two joining fragments of fired clay were recovered from a buried soil layer 1002. It is possible that the fragments are part of an artefact such as a loomweight, but it is more likely that they represent the remains of something structural such as a clay oven. The site has suffered significant modern truncation, especially in the east where the dumping occurred. It is unlikely that development will encounter preserved archaeological remains given the depth of these deposits, widespread disturbance in most areas and the low feature density. If remains are encountered they are most likely to be late post-medieval and modern in date.
