Archaeology and History

Both Fleam Dyke and the Roman Road are archaeological sites of national importance, and large sections of each are scheduled ancient monuments.

Fleam Dyke was constructed in the early Anglo-Saxon period to act as a territorial marker between the kingdoms of East Anglia and Mercia while the Roman Road probably follows the route of a prehistoric trackway that continued in use into the Roman period, linking the small town at Cambridge with the Icknield Way and beyond.
