Full Description

Gunton, Land north of Hubbards Loke (LWT 188, TM 5436 9580) evaluation trenching of the planned glades within phase 1 of a proposed woodland burial site which, at its closest point, is some 50m north-east of St Peter's Church, Gunton, revealed a small number of archaeological features of either uncertain or Post medieval date. Of the two ditches found during the evaluation one contained a small quantity of Post medieval peg tile while the other one did not yield any finds. Both of these linear features can be interpreted as former field boundaries. A small pit and a number of probable and possible postholes were also recorded in two of the five evaluation trenches. Both the small pit and all of the posthole type features were small and undateable; in addition no patterning could be discerned that might indicate evidence for any type of structure. During the evaluation a thorough metal detector was made of the upcast spoil and areas between the trenches and the field surface was visually scanned for stray finds and the few finds recovered were predominantly of later Post medieval date plus one abraded sherd of possible later prehistoric date, a single medieval buckle and a small number of abraded medieval sherds (S1).
