An archaeological excavation was carried out on Puddlebrook Playing Fields, Haverhill following an evaluation which revealed evidence dating from the prehistoric to the post-medieval period, and in particular a cremation burial dating to the Late Bronze Age (Stirk, evaluation report 2009/260, copy in digital archive). The excavation identified a second cremation pit also of Late Bronze Age date but no other features (S1).
Radiocarbon dates of 2720 +/- 35BP (950-800 cal BC, 95.4% probability, SUERC-30005) and 2905 +/- 35BP (1260-990BC, 95.4% prob', SUERC-30006)(S2) were given for the cremations.
