The Romans were definitely living around Foxton. There is a villa site towards the rail line near Shepreth and a cemetery in the field to the south of the station where a large lead Roman coffin has been excavated amongst others. Other bits and pieces have been found around Caxton Lane and this side of Shepreth Brook, and all around Manor Farm just over the parish boundary to Harston.

Before the Romans, Iron Age activity has been detected as field marks and in excavations all around Shepreth and Hoffers Brooks. Little evidence has been found in the present area of the village.
