Abstract:
A watching brief over the excavation of two trenches for the construction of bungalows observed the remains of the eastern bank of the Car Dyke. The dyke was c.120km long and is traditionally attributed to the reign of the Emperor Hadrian (117-138AD), it connected the River Witham near Lincoln with the River Cam at Waterbeach. No artefacts earlier than the 20th century were present in either of the trenches. Stratigraphic evidence suggested that the Car Dyke fell into disuse or disrepair during the post-Roman or medieval period. Medieval or post-medieval ploughing on the site caused the gravel bank to be truncated and largely levelled. A road was built across the site in the mid 20th century, cutting into debris from Second World War military buildings formerly on the site, but decommissioned in the 1950s. [Au(adp)]
