Between the 3rd and 6th of November 1998, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on land at 3/3a Lynn Road, Ely, Cambridgeshire (TL5402/8041). The work was commissioned by B&S Developments Ltd.
Extensive medieval archaeology, mostly dated by pottery to the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, was found in the two trenches excavated, and several different types of features were briefly examined. These included at least three hearths in trench 2, and a probable cess pit in trench 1. No unequivocal evidence of structures was found, but it is likely that this type of remains exist on site, outside of the area of investigations, or sealed beneath the deposits observed in this evaluation.
