PROJECT DETAILS An archaeological monitoring was carried out within an early post-medieval barn just to the north of Ufford Hall, in Fressingfield, Suffolk. This revealed ditches and a posthole, and a 15th-16th century pit containing pottery, which all pre-dated the barn. Clay floor layers and cart ruts were also recorded within the building, as was a series of postholes and a horse skull burial, thought to demonstrate the barn's conversion to a stable. The archaeological deposits appeared to be well preserved. Project status: Complete Yes, Validated Yes Previous/Future Work: Previous Yes, Future Not known Associated Identifiers: HER event no.
