Abstract

Between the 27th and 31st October 2000, an archaeological evaluation and monitoring brief was undertaken at Castle Farm, Castle Camps, Cambridgeshire, by staff of the Cambridgeshire County Council Archaeological Field Unit. The work was carried out during re-development at Castle Farm, including the excavation of service trenches, and investigation of a proposed swimming pool and tennis court. Six trenches were monitored and recorded across the site to determine the presence or absence of archaeological remains. The subsequent investigation of the trenches revealed archaeological features in only one trench, located close to the modern farmhouse, which contained some of the wall foundations of an earlier 15th century brick building on the site at Castle Farm. No other archaeology was observed in any trenches and this appears to confirm that the top of the motte was demolished during the 15th and 16th centuries ahead of the construction of the later medieval buildings. No traces of the medieval castle or fortifications survive.
