In March 2004, the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on approximately 0.2ha of land at Kingsfield School, Chatteris, Cambridgeshire (TL 3895/8622). This was in advance of the proposed construction of new classroom blocks.
Three trenches totalling 60m in length were opened by machine, of which two contained post-medieval archaeology. There was some evidence of the ground in the middle of Trench 1 having been made up, possibly to level out the dip left by quarrying.
