Between October 19th and November 2nd 1998 the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council carried out an archaeological evaluation at the Music and Drama Centre, Brookside, Huntingdon (TL2385/7210). The work was commissioned by CCC Resources Directorate, Property and Contract Services.

The result from the evaluation in the southern part of the development site revealed significant remains of a zone of medieval buildings outside of the medieval town ditch. In the northern part of the site the evaluation identified medieval quarrying and earlier features which may represent prehistoric activity.

In establishing the presence of medieval suburban development on a secondary north east-south-west thoroughfare, this evaluation has made an important contribution to the understanding of medieval Huntingdon.
