Abstract:
A small scale archaeological excavation was undertaken by Access Cambridge Archaeology at the University of Cambridge in collaboration with Newnham College in September 2010. Two small trenches were opened within the grounds of the College to try and locate a group of skeletons excavated in 1939. Ditches and pits producing mid to late Roman pottery were excavated, further evidence of significant Roman activity within this area. Pottery dating from the 13th to the 20th century was found in the topsoil, with a concentration in trench 2 of post-medieval pottery and artefacts, suggesting that pre-college buildings existed nearby, despite the presumption that this was arable land, part of the West Field of Cambridge, throughout the medieval and early modern periods.
