Full Description

Evaluation on land at Troston Road, Honington, was required to investigate the archaeological potential of the site. Evidence of medieval activity was present throughout the site but was most dense along the road frontage in the north eastern part of the site. Evidence of extraction pits of unknown date was also identified towards the eastern limits. As the majority of archaeological deposits identified were either sealed by overburden deep enough to protect them during development or lay outside of areas of deep ground disturbance, a programme of archaeological monitoring followed the evaluation. This consisted of the controlled stripping of the access road area, during which isolated medieval features were recorded, and monitoring of the strip foundations and associated groundworks. A large undated extraction pit was the only pre-modern feature noted in the footings. A layer of mixed subsoil rich in medieval pottery was observed in the stripped access road but no incised features were present (S1).
