Type and Period (3)
Two undated pits, two undated ditches and a 19th-century brick culvert were
encountered. The find assemblage was limited, comprising two prehistoric flint
waste flakes and two sherds of pottery (one Roman and one medieval).
Perhaps the most interesting of the features was one of the pits that was filled with
heat-affected flint (often created in the process of heating liquids). The pit had
evidence of scorching to the sides. This feature is undated, but by comparison with
similar isolated pits with similar fills across the region, it is reasonable to suggest
that it is probably of Bronze Age date (2,500 BC – 700 BC).
No evidence of the supposed disserted village of Little Fakenham was discovered (S1).
