Archaeological Investigations at Kirtling Towers Moat, Cambridgeshire - An Interim Report

Change log


Boast, Robin 


Archaeological works were conducted in accordance with the Scheduled Monument Consent (HSD9/2/397 pt4, 26 August 1991) for the trial trenching of the inner south-eastern edge of the moat at Kirtling Towers, Cambridgeshire (National Monument No. 13608). The purpose of this archaeological investigation was to assess the likely impact to any surviving archaeological deposits of a proposed reduction of the area of banking by 1 to 1.5 metres within an area 25m by 14m of the inner south-eastern corner of the moat (Figure 1). A further goal was to provide preliminary dating evidence for the construction of the moat and any prior or subsequent occupation of the site that could be obtained from this limited investigation.
