1. Probable Roman settlement found during the excavation of the AS cemetery in 1927 and 1928, is 500yds north of Burwell church on chalk at 60ft above OD. Below the AS graves was found a pit,12ft deep and 22ft in diameter, which was interpreted as a quarry. The upper part of the filling contained sherds of Roman pottery, box and roof tiles, burnt stone, animal bones and traces of wood and charcoal, suggesting a substantial building nearby.
