As part of site investigation works, associated with proposals by Helical Retail Limited for a major development of a site centred on Cox Lane, Ipswich (TM 1662-4450), a series of test-pits were excavated and piled window samples undertaken by Soils Engineering. Suffolk County Council’s Archaeological Service Field Projects Team were commissioned, by Cgms Consulting (on behalf of Helical Retail) to carry out archaeological monitoring of these interventions and produce report combining these results with a synthesis of previously known archaeological information. A project design covering the monitoring was written by Tom Loader (Suffolk County Council Archaeological Service) with reference to a Specification for Site Investigation produced by Michael Bradbrook Consultants Limited. The initial phase of monitoring, for investigations which fell within the area of the site designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument (SAM No. 185), was carried out on the 13th, 14th, 15th & 20th of March, 2000.
