Abstract:
A Desk-based Assessment was undertaken along the route of the proposed Peterborough to Whittlesey Reinforcement Main, running approximately from TL 1913/9588 to TL 2351/9585. The study area lies within a zone of high archaeological potential crossing the Fen Edge, and areas that have been islands within the Fen at various times. The entire Stanground to Whittlesey area is rich in archaeological sites from the prehistoric period onwards. Prehistoric finds have also been discovered close to the route, and further abroad in the Fen, while the internationally important Bronze Age site of Flag Fen is only 2.5km to the north, and the potential exists to find similar sites. A possible Bronze Age barrow has been identified at the eastern end of the route. Probably the greatest potential of the development corridor is for the discovery of further Roman remains, of which numerous examples have already been recovered. The pipeline route converges with that of the proposed road associated with the potential future southward expansion of Stanground. The area of these proposals has been subject to archaeological investigations that have revealed Roman enclosures and other features. In the area around the Scheduled Ancient Monument of Horsey Hill Civil War Fort, any development may reveal 17th century artefacts, both military and civilian, and could potentially reveal the location of earthworks that have been subsequently ploughed out. Previous aerial photographic and geophysical surveys have been useful in establishing the location of archaeological remains within the study area.
