Abstract

Between the 5th March and the 14 of June 2001 the Archaeological Field Unit of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological investigation at The Old Rectory, Ufford. The investigation entailed examination of floors within the foot-print of the hall prior to floor re-surfacing taking place and observation of service trench excavations. The investigation uncovered an oval-shaped drain under the stone floor of the utility room which on full excavation was found to have been truncated by the construction of the Hall's west wing. Investigation of the drain produced no artefactual evidence, thus, achieving an accurate date for the construction of the drain proved to be impossible. However, it is possible that the drain was constructed during the fourteenth century which would make it contemporary with the initial construction of the Hall.
