Extensive excavations on the fen margin at Billingborough revealed archaeological remains of considerable regional importance — a Middle Bronze Age enclosure which remains the most extensively and completely excavated enclosure of its type in the area; Late Bronze Age/Early Iron Age salt-making debris which remains one of the earliest and most substantial assemblages of such material in the area; and a pottery sequence for the Bronze Age and Iron Age periods in the region.
The pottery sequence has been extensively used by the Fenland Survey Project, and it is of considerable importance to prehistoric studies in the East Midlands.
