Understanding Rural Heritage Assets Under Threat of Urbanisation in the Cambridge City Deal

National Importance Programme Pilot Project Report

By Oxford Archaeology East

The pilot project explores the mechanisms for identifying, recording and mapping sites considered to be of national importance, using and evaluating available datasets such as the Historic Environment Record and the National Archaeological Identification Survey.

It examines a study area of contiguous parishes around the new settlement of Cambourne to the west of Cambridge on the Cambridgeshire claylands. Heritage assets include a banjo enclosure, ridge and furrow, moated sites and deserted medieval villages.
