In November 1995, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council carried out an archaeological evaluation of land at Barton Farm site of the King’s School, Ely (TL 5376/7984). The work was carried out for Purcell Miller Tritton and Partners on behalf of the King’s School, in advance of a proposed extension to the Junior School. An earthwork survey was completed of the remains of a medieval ridge and furrow field system. Documentary evidence suggests that this field was enclosed and turned over to pasture in the late medieval period. Evaluation trenching revealed a linear ditch which predated, and was truncated by, the ridge and furrow. No dating evidence was recovered from this feature.
