Abstract

On the 6th June 2005 the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit conducted an archaeological evaluation on land at Burwell Village Community School, The Causeway, Burwell, Cambridgeshire (TL 5881 6712) in advance of construction of a school library. A trench totalling 14.90m in length was mechanically excavated within the c.550msq site. A large c.19th-century quarry pit more than 9.5m in length and 0.8m deep was found cutting natural lower chalk bedrock. No other archaeological features were found within the development area.
