Full Description

An archaeological evaluation in advance of potential development at Boyton Hall, Haverhill identified two Roman features and part of a substantial phase of medieval settlement activity in the 12th-14th centuries, with a possible Late Saxon or Early medieval origin. The larger part of this occupation evidence was seen in the adjacent evaluation WTL 009/HVH 064. Identified features demonstrated the presence of possible buildings, rubbish pits and subdivisions of land extending along the north side of the access track to the former sites of Alderton Chapel and Chapel Farm. Future development will therefore disturb important evidence of medieval settlement associated with the Chapel and so open area excavation and further documentary research has been recommended (S1).
