On the 23rd October 2002 the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council undertook an archaeological evaluation at the King's School, Ely (TL 53788 79834). The proposed development entailed the construction of a new classroom block together with associated services.

A single trench was excavated within the proposed building footprint in order to ascertain the presence or absence of archaeological remains. The subsequent investigation of the trench revealed a single narrow ditch. Dating evidence retrieved from the excavation of the ditch consisted of a single sherd of pottery and three fragments of tile all from the medieval period. The ditch may have functioned as a drainage channel and be associated with Barton Farm.
