From the 2nd to the 6th of January 2012 Oxford Archaeology East was commissioned excavate four test pits along the inside of the retaining wall surrounding the castle mound at Castle Hill, Shire Hall, Cambridge. Prior to this a watching brief was conducted, while Oakley Soils of Bury carried out a bore hole survey conducted on both sides of the castle mound. Evidence of deliberate backfilling and the construction cut for the wall was found in test pits two, three and four and evidence of the original mound (motte) material was found in test pits one, two and three.
