Abstract:
In February 2008, Archaeological Solutions (AS) carried out an archaeological evaluation of 15 London Road, Harston, Cambridgeshire (NGR TL 4322 5169). The evaluation was commissioned in advance of the redevelopment of the site for two houses and a double open bay cart shed (Planning ref: S/1761/07/F). The desk-based assessment showed there was a moderate amount of evidence of late prehistoric settlement in the area of Harston, with some Bronze Age findings but mostly Iron Age evidence. Roman occupation seemed to continue at the sites of the late prehistoric settlement at Manor Farm and Great Shelford. An Anglo-Saxon cemetery was found in the late 19th century and sunken huts were also found at Manor Farm which indicates a settlement in the area. Medieval Harston was of a substantial size with 29 tenants at the time of the Domesday survey, one mill, several medieval manors and a parish church. The development of the village continued into the post-medieval period with the building of numerous domestic buildings and inns to accommodate the A10 passing trade. The trial trench evaluation revealed a small number of archaeological features comprising a ditch (Trs.1 and 2 F1023), a gully (Tr.1 F1015), two pits (Tr.1 F1013, Tr.4 F1003) and six plough scars (Tr.1 F1017 and F1019; Tr.3 F1005, F1007, F1009 and F1011). Plough Scar F1017 contained a copper alloy button. None of the other features contained finds.
