Archaeological monitoring was undertaken on land at Mulligan's Yard, Cowlinge during the development of an all-weather exercise track. The work identified a series of ditches located at distant and irregular intervals along the east-west stretch of the exercise track (on the highest ground), a pit, a burnt spread and a colluvial layer. The colluvium was observed predominantly along the west area of the exercise track route, in Poundhouse Plantation. A small quantity of pottery recovered from one of the ditches and the pit suggests that the archaeological remains were Iron Age.
