Full Description

Monitoring of new deicer facility by building 1120 at RAF Lakenheath identified a number of ditches relating to the nearby Roman Settlement. The shallow depth of the soil strip for this development meant that the ditch lines were only just visible and no lengths were excavated. However, a plan of their location adds to the knowledge of the overall plan of the settlement (S1).
