Summary

An archaeological evaluation was carried out on land to the rear of the Three Blackbirds public house, Ditton Green, Woodditton, Cambridgeshire on 31st October 2016 as a condition on a planning application relating to the construction of a new guest annex along with the extension of the existing car park. The two trenches excavated, measuring 25m in total, identified a subsoil layer approximately 0.3m thick across the site which contained sherds of both medieval and post-medieval pottery. Three features were excavated, one of which contained early medieval pottery sherds. However, these
were considered to be of natural derivation rather than the result of human intervention.
