Abstract:
The Twenty Pence Project site is adjacent to the scheduled site of Bullocks Haste Common near Cottenham, Cambridgeshire. This seems to have been a fairly modest, localised, small-scale agricultural site based on arable farming and animal husbandry exploiting animals for both meat and secondary products. There is little evidence for structures, trade, or industrial activities, though it is possible that local pottery production occurred not far away. The site was probably in use throughout the Roman period, though the features excavated to date suggest a possible focus in the second to third centuries. Despite the immediate presence of the Car Dyke, there is little evidence that it had much effect on local life. Post-excavation work is ongoing. The archaeological features exposed mainly relate to agricultural activities: large ditches which served to delineate property boundaries, drain the low-lying land, and contain livestock.
