The Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation in front of the north door of St. Peter's Church, Barton, Cambridgeshire, in June 2004. The work was commissioned by Freeland Rees Roberts of behalf of Barton Parochial Church Council in advance of construction of an annex with disabled access.
The investigation involved hand digging an area approximately 4m by 4.5m. Several burials were revealed at relatively shallow depths. The graves were cut by a pit (or possibly another, more recent grave) which in turn was sealed by a cobbled surface (probably a path) which was sealed by post-medieval deposits and topsoil.
