Between July 21st and 23rd 2004 an archaeological evaluation was undertaken at Ailwyn Community School Ramsey, Cambridgeshire (TL 2948 8489) by staff of the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council. The proposed development includes the construction of a new science block on an existing hard play area and the relocation of the hard play area to the east. The project was commissioned by Property and Procurement, Cambridgeshire County Council and was carried out in accordance with a pre-planning brief issued by Kasia Gdaniec of the Archaeology Office, Cambridgeshire County Council.
The only definable feature in the evaluation was a large undated ditch uncovered in trench 4. Due to lack of dating it is difficult to ascertain the exact function of the ditch by it may be a boundary ditch or a drainage ditch.
The evaluation has made a limited contribution to the understanding of archaeology of Ramsey Abbey and has demonstrated that this site was on marginal land on the outer limits of Medieval Ramsey.
