Description Circular and linear cropmarks. Said to be a 'villa site dug by Cambridge'. <1> Nothing visible on APs. A few sherds of Roman tile on a ploughed south west facing slope, centred TL 53154455, but there is no concentration to indicate the site of a building. The supposed excavations not known to residents of Crave Hall, and no mention in Cambridgeshire SMR. <2> Site Assessment: Excavated site? If so, by whom? The ring-ditch and a linear feature which is probably a medieval field boundary were mapped as part of the NMP and were recorded on aerial photographs in 2010 <3-4>
