The excavation was carried out over 6 weeks between the 14th April and 1st June 1998, on the area of a proposed building for Ramsey Abbey School (TL 2931 8512). The land is being redeveloped for a new school building by the Education Property Department of Cambridgeshire County Council. The investigation are was confined to the building footprint, but included recording of service trenches linking existing utilities. The excavation was commissioned by Property Management Services, Cambridgeshire County Council and was undertaken by the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire Count Council.

The investigation has identified significant archaeological remains linked both to the medieval Monastery and the Late Saxon Abbey. In addition significant Post-medieval deposits were discovered, much of which could be tied to the 18th and 19th century maps of the area.
