An evaluation was carried out prior to the erection of a stud farm. The site is situated to the west of the small settlement of Moulton, which lies within the district of Forest Heath, Suffolk. The brief and specification note that the site lies within an area with an un-quantified archaeological component due to a lack of archaeological work carried out in the vicinity. 5 areas were evaluated; 2 of which revealed archaeological evidence (Areas A and D) whilst 3 contained no finds or features. The evaluation revealed a moden rubbish pit (Area B tr. 9 F10008), a pit (Area A Tr.6 F1010) and the truncated remains of an inverted collared urn/food vessel (Area D Tr. 11) (S1).
