On the 25th and 26th of June 2001 the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on land off High Street and Painters Lane, Sutton in advance of the construction of a number of dwellings and associated grounds works. The aim of the investigation was to record and assess the nature of any archaeological evidence encountered prior to construction and hence to assess the potential for surviving remains. Given the subject site's location close to the High Street, the historic centre and the archaeological remains discovered at Red Lion Lane, special attention was paid to the identification and interpretation of deposits and features in the context of what seemed to be an area of high archaeological potential. During the archaeological evaluation, probable quarrying activity and extensive modern disturbance was observed, thus potentially removing any evidence of early land use.
