Full Description

2002: Monitoring was carried out during the excavation of a building footprint for an agricultural building at Eldon Farm, Mildenhall. Two peat hollows were uncovered between areas of orange sand underlying a sandy ploughsoil. A thin scatter of features likely to be prehistoric, although there was insufficient evidence to closely date the site (S1).

Descriptions of flint finds are broad, dating to a specific period bracket is ill-advised. However, they may be at least Upper Palaeolithic or younger based on details of discovery. (S2).
