On the 12th June 2002 Rob Atkins and Mark Hinman of the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on land at 18a Cambridge Road, Ely, Cambridgeshire (TL 5350 8009) in advance of residential development. A total of seven test pits totalling 44.75m² were mechanically excavated within the c.0.11 hectare site. This was a c.6% sample of the affected area. Directly below a modern disturbed layer, there was a 16th/17th century levelling or terrace deposit c.0.35m thick across the site. This layer sealed a sterile layer up to 0.45m thick which may represent the former medieval plough soil. Below this layer was natural sub-soil. No significant archaeological remains were encountered.
