Itter Farm

Excavated by the Peterborough Museum Field Club, the site revealed a complex of ditches and pits close to the line of the "Fen Causeway".

 

Large quantities of Roman pottery sherds were recovered of late third- to fourth-century date, together with fragments of millstone-grit querns, coins (ranging from a worn Bronze of Domitian to a mint specimen of Constans) and  domestic detritus.

 

Abundant animal bones from cattle, sheep and goats were present, and the assemblage was taken to represent a farming community, although no structures were detected.
