Full Description

An archaeological excavation carried out on land off of Skeltons Drove, Beck Row, Mildenhall, identified two main phases of activity in the Late Bronze Age/Early Iron Age and post-medieval periods. Prehistoric activity, including a scatter of pits and postholes and a 7.5m diameter roundhouse with associated human cremation and possible south-east facing entrance, was seen to focus upon two natural peat-filled hollows within the fen-edge landscape. Recommendations have been made for the site to be considered in any future publication of the adjacent MNL 502, MNL 598 and MNL 618 sites (S1).
