Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation and excavation revealed a number of features (including pits, ditches, post holes and gullies) across the proposed route of the sewage main between Cottenham and Landbeach. The majority of these were undated due to a paucity of dating material. The majority of features encountered appeared to be related to field systems and the rural landscape. The Iron Age was fairly well represented, but the landscape was dominated by Roman remains. Romano-British ditches excavated were previously unknown, but fitted in with the established picture for the Cottenham Fens. A Roman settlement in Cow Fen, was quite clear from cropmarks. A 2nd century cremation although found in isolation, may have been part of a larger cemetery lying on the periphery of the settlement, as was usual for Roman burial practice. [Au(adp)]
