Abstract:
The site lies on the south side of Cambridge approximately 2km south of the historic core of the city with the river Cam 2km to the west. Archaeological buried remains have been found in the surrounding area. Rare evidence of prehistoric settlement comes in the form of a late Bronze Age pit to the west, a possible ditch to the south and several find spots. Most of the remains date to the Roman period. The Roman road in to Cambridge (the Via Devana), lies to the east of the site, running parallel with modern Hills Road. Between the road and the river evidence of Roman farming has been found including elements of field systems to the north and south of the site. Other evidence in the vicinity relates to the post-medieval period. The presence of Roman archaeology nearby provides the greatest potential for remains on the development area.
