Full Description

2008: An archaeological evaluation was carried at a vacant lot of land on Stow Road, Ixworth between Nos. 12 and 'The Blooms'; a former open hall building that has stood on the site since at least the 15th century. Two phases of archaeology were found; one consisting of horizons of building rubble associated with the major remodelling of timber framed house that occurred between the 16th-18th centuries and earlier rubbish pits that predated the building. Finds dated the pits to between the mid 12th - mid 13th century and included sherds of glazed Hedingham fineware and medieval coarsewares (S1).
2010: A post hole was also discovered close to these features, which was possibly medieval (S2).
