Houghton and Wyton, Cambridgeshire

Houghton and Wyton are small villages now conjoined to form a single nucleated settlement, sited on alluvial gravel between 5m and 10m OD close to the northern banks of the River Ouse 4km east of Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire. Prior to HEFA, the area had received no significant archaeological attention, although a Romano-British cemetery lies a little to the north of the village on Houghton Hill while the history of the villages has been reviewed some time ago by the Victoria County History.
