Type and Period (4)
2006: an archaeological evaluation of land at Washington Street, Beck Row, Mildenhall, identified evidence of Late Iron Age and Roman occupation, principally consisting of ditch systems together with occasional pits. The dense scatter of features indicates a high level of activity, which is clearly an extension of the multi-period site MNL 502 that lies directly to the north, and it is recommended that further archaeological investigation takes place prior to development. The evaluation also identified a natural, peat-infilled hollow, a typical feature of the natural fen-edge landscape. There was no indication of any recent waterlogging and the peat deposits were desiccated and of limited potential for environmental analysis (S1).
2007: full excavation of circa 1900 sq m revealed continuation of Late Iron Age and Early Roman activity found to the NE at MNL 502. Mainly intercutting ditches(including one complete inhumation and skull fragments of another individual) and occasional pits. For summary see (S2).
