Full Description

An archaeological monitoring was carried out on land at Priory Park, Nacton (TM 1891 4068); site code NAC 105. Monitored topsoil stripping and excavation of features was carried out at the site between 11th February and 25th June 2009 during development of the site. The development involved the construction of holiday lodges and associated roads and services. A number of features of archaeological interest were recorded during the work. These included a scattering of pits, many of which were un-dated, as well as some dating to the Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age. A line of post-holes also of Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date was revealed. Boundary ditches, some undated, and one dating to the Early Iron Age were also recorded. An assemblage of finds mainly consisting of prehistoric pottery and flint was collected during the archaeological work (S1).
