An evaluation was carried out prior to the construction of five new dwellings at Umhlanga, Haughley, in order to sample and record any surviving archaeological deposits. The site was known to occupy a location within the outer bailey of Haughley castle and overlay the ditch and assumed bank of the castle defences. The profile of the defensive ditch, including an internal bank, was recorded and features of 12th-14th century date were excavated within the bailey area. These medieval features were sealed by a metre of overburden. A small amount of residual material was also encountered, comprising a sherd of Iron Age pottery, a probable Mesolithic blade and a Neolithic/ Bronze Age Blade, as well as a sherd of Thetford ware and part of a copper alloy ring (S1).
