Abstract:
Prior to the recent evaluation only one site was known within the proposed road area. This represented the Roman road from Baldock to Godmanchester. The evaluation located an area of Late Bronze Age/ Early Iron Age settlement in the vicinity of Trench 8. Aerial photograph analysis and geophysical survey identified a complex of ditched enclosures, probably contemporary with the Roman road, which underlay the modern A1. The enclosures contained settlement features including pits and buildings. Burials were recorded on in the vicinity, but their precise locations were uncertain. The discovery of one furrow and the distribution of artefacts in the ploughsoil indicated medieval and post-medieval activity within the area. [Au(abr)]
