Between the 11th and 12th of March 2009, Oxford Archaeology East carried an archaeological watching brief on three pits at the base of a retaining wall skirting Castle Hill mound in Cambridge (TL 445 591). The skirting wall ran along the southern edge of the base of the castle mound. The monitoring was carried out during the investigations by Atkins Engineering Solutions of the walls foundation. The test pit monitoring revealed that the ground had been heavily disturbed in the modern period. The disturbed fills contained pottery from the Roman and medieval periods, as well as post-medieval and modern ceramics. No archaeological features were recorded.
