Full Description

2005: Evaluation revealed three areas of ditches, including an area of medieval field ditches in the SE part of the development site. One ditch contained a large medieval pottery assemblage and an adjacent pit contained over 5kg of daub, much of which had the impressions of daub in it, suggesting medieval buildings in the vicinity. The remains are thought to represent medieval activity along the course of the Creeting Road (S1).
2005: Excavation identified a cobbled pathway, a regular grid of plot boundaries/ drainage ditches (possibly tofts) running back from the road, a post built structure and cobbled surface, and a second barn like structure with two parrallel beam slots and two clay extraction pits (S2).
