Between 14th and 16th March 2011, Oxford Archaeology East carried out an archaeological watching brief at Isleham Priory, Isleham, Cambridgeshire (TL 6420 7435). The watching brief was undertaken to monitor the excavation of a pipe trench and manhole pit for a new drainage scheme along the boundary of Isleham Priory, a Scheduled Monument (SM27101) with an extant Romanesque church (Listed Building 48821). During the ground works two undated pits and a single post-hole were observed, sealed by a dumped deposit containing late medieval/post-medieval finds. The features may be contemporary with the priory whilst the dumped deposit may derive from demolition material from one of the later monastic buildings.
