Abstract:
During October 2003 AS updated an archaeological desk-based assessment of land at Dernford Farm, Sawston, Cambridgeshire (Pearson 2000). To the south of the assessment area is the site of a late Anglo-Saxon and medieval settlement, centred on the manor of Dernford (now the site of Dernford Farm). Roman pottery has also been found in the same area, suggesting earlier occupation. A rectangular cropmark on the western edge of the site is perhaps also suggestive of an enclosure of Roman date. Following the desk-based assessment, Cambridgeshire County Council County Archaeology Office required further archaeological investigation of the site to be undertaken. This comprised a programme of fieldwalking and also a geophysical survey of the area of proposed mineral extraction. During December 2003 AS conducted the fieldwalking evaluation. The latter revealed a general scatter of struck flint across the site, with no apparent concentrations. The flints comprise notched flakes, blades and scrapers, and include a pyramid micro blade core of Mesolithic/early Neolithic date and a partially polished, flaked chert axe of Neolithic date.
