The UK’s biggest road construction project involves excavation on a massive scale – 10 million m³.

Road widening, new junctions and a 17-mile bypass south of Huntingdon carve through an archaeological landscape covering all periods from the earliest hunter-gatherers to WWII. The investigation and mitigation work by MOLA is on a corresponding scale and is due to complete March 2018.

 

 

  • 537 trial trenches
  • 800 ha of potential archaeology
  • 80 archaeological sites
  • 130 staff

More than 25 settlements have been uncovered, including: Iron Age, Roman, Saxon and Medieval sites.
