The archaeological excavation of the site on Downham Road, where East Cambridgeshire District Council is hoping to build a new leisure facility for the District, will start this week (commencing 16th May).

At the request of the Cambridgeshire County Council Historic Environment Team, the whole 2.8 hectare site will be excavated because it is located in an area of high archaeological potential.

The work is being carried out by Cambridge Archaeological Unit, part of the University of Cambridge and is expected to take 13 weeks.
