Full Description

An archaeological evaluation was carried out at Fornham House, Fornham St Martin prior to the construction of an extension to the existing care home. Two trenches revealed evidence of a trackway that is recorded on the 1884 Ordinance Survey map. The site was heavily disturbed but a shallow irregular shaped pit may have been medieval as it contained only a single sherd of pottery dated 16th -18th century and animal bone (S1).
