Full Description

A series of evaluation trenches were excavated along the line of Sewage Works road, Lincoln Road at RAF Mildenhall in order to establish the impact of road refurbishment on archaeological deposits. A total of 15 trenches were opened up; these revealed a substantial layer of reworked agricultural soil beneath the existing tarmac in most of the trenches with chalk rising to the surface at the northern end of the road. Archaeological features were identified in Trench 9 but were c.1m below the existing road surface and below any construction works (S1).
