OA East (formerly Cambridgeshire County Council's CAM ARC) conducted an archaeological evaluation on land at Burrough Green Primary School, Cambridgeshire in late July 2008. The investigation consisted of 6 trenches, 30m in total length, within the proposed redevelopment area of the school which is to include the construction of new buildings followed by the demolition of the modern buildings. This evaluation occurred at the pre-planning stage of the proposed development. The site lies within an area of archaeological sensitivity next to a known moat which is a scheduled ancient monument (SM 33588) Trench 2, directly in front of the Primary School, picked up the southeast corner of the moat, where it turns to the northwest. This has previously only been a projected location. This investigation, supported by evidence provided by aerial photographs, geophysical survey and historical maps enables us to more closely and confidently locate the exact position of the moat. Other archaeological features present included a linear rubble-constructed feature recorded along the length of Trench 4 which may represent a 19th century farm track visible on early OS maps, a boundary ditch dated to the 19th century was recorded in Trench 5.
