Full Description

Monitoring of footing trenches for a house and garage at Hill Top Farm, Stowmarket, in Suffolk, revealed two ditches which were parallel to the nearby road and two pits. These were all probably post-medieval, although the ditches may have originally been medieval re-cut long-standing boundaries. No finds were recovered, although post-medieval brick fragments, china sherds and bottle glass were recorded in the pits and ditches. There were varying levels of disturbance in both the house and garage plots, which may account for the lack of any earlier archaeological deposits (S1).
