Archaeological trenching undertaken by Time Team Archaeologists at Blythburgh Priory in 2009 was followed by two further, largely English Heritage funded, campaigns of investigation in 2010 and 2011. A fourth phase of work, that covered by this report, was carried out by Suffolk County Council's Archaeological Service Field Projects Team in 2012. The 2012 works combined the reopening and reassessment of some of the Time Team trenches along with the excavation of new targeted trenches.
