Between the 20th and the 21st of December 2016 Oxford Archaeology East conducted an archaeological evaluation on land to the rear of the former Crown public house, High Street, Burwell. The evaluation was carried out to provide information concerning the potential impact of a development proposal on archaeological remains. To this end two trenches of 20m length were excavated.
The topography of the land and the findings in the trenches indicated that the area had been quarried out as part of the 19th century lime quarry that was located to the east. Any earlier remains had been truncated completely by the quarrying. A small number of features of modern date cutting into the quarry backfill were found in Trench 2 at the bottom of the quarried area. These were garden features and rubbish pits probably relating to the former public house.
