Type and Period (2)
An archaeological evaluation was carried out on 2.9ha of vacant land off of Turnpike Road, Red Lodge, Suffolk, in advance of residential development. Trenching showed the natural subsoil and archaeological horizon to lie at a shallow depth below modern topsoil deposits. A small assemblage of prehistoric struck flint was recovered from four possible features and unstratified contexts, with one further, well-defined, pit containing an assemblage of Middle Bronze Age pottery and environmental remains suggesting domestic activity. The results indicate a phase of low-level prehistoric occupation in the vicinity with features being isolated and widespread. The shallow nature of the trenching suggests that some archaeological deposits may have been lost to medieval and post-medieval agriculture or warrening (S1).
