Between the 25th June to 23rd July 2013, OA East carried out an archaeological watching brief at Cambridge Castle Hill Mound, Cambridge (TL 4457 5919). The monitoring was carried out during remedial conservation work at the base of the castle mound (Cambridge Castle Schedule Monument) and retaining walls adjoining Braeside House (Clare College land) and Undercroft (to the south and east of the castle mound). The works included the provision of new fencing along the length of the existing wall, replacement of damaged brick wall, the removal of soil to the back of the wall, vegetation clearance and new planting on the mound.
The resulting groundworks exposed part of the original medieval castle mound construction and make up.
