Type and Period (4)
1989: In garden of Stour House an area of 144 square metres was excavated by SAU prior to redevelopment. IA features consisted of two pits, the larger producing high status finds including burnt fragments of three decorated bone combs, another decorated burnt bone fragment of uncertain function and a dozen baked clay sling shot. Six of these were found in a little cache within the pit and the total of fourteen from the site is the largest group from Suffolk. Later on the site appears to have been on the edge of an enclosure as three, nearly parallel, ditches were found. Each was just over a metre deep. Two are of LIA date and from the top of one came a bronze button and loop fastener. The third ditch appears to be early Rom. The Med property boundary runs parallel to these ditches and suggests these could still be seen during the Med period (S1 & PSIA 37, 163).
Carbonised plant remains from MIA pit (0094) and LIA ditch (0082) analysed. Details in (S2).
Also BA, Rom, Sax, Med & PMed.
