Between 25th and 26th of February 2018, Oxford Archaeology East conducted a programme of archaeological monitoring and recording at the site of 22 Taylors Lane, Swavesey (centred TL 3600 6902), in advance of a development comprising a two storey extension, internal alterations and construction of a raised rear terrace.
The site is located within the ‘Castle Hill’ earthworks, comprising earthworks associated with a medieval castle and planned town, which are a scheduled monument under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979 (National Heritage List for England Entry No. 1006913; Cambridgeshire HER ref DCB337).
The investigation revealed evidence for the earthworks associated with the planned town, in the form of intercutting ditches, the latest of which is dated via ceramic evidence to between AD1300–1450, and from which a quantity of faunal remains was recovered, including horse, sheep/goat and pig. Additionally, a post-medieval metalled surface was recorded sealing the ditches; its function and overall plan were not discernible.
