Cambridgeshire County Council's Archaeological Field Unit conducted an archaeological evaluation at 71 Castle Street on 17th September 1997. The evaluation was commissioned by Mr Miah of the Star of India Restaurant in advance of the proposed construction of a restaurant extension. The work was designed to fulfil the requirements of a brief produced by the County Archaeology Office (Kaner 1997). It took the form of a single hand dug test pit excavated in a yard to the rear of the present Star of India restaurant, at TL 44415/59265. The main objective was to ascertain the depth below the modern ground surface at which undisturbed archaeological deposits survived.
