August 2015. Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty National Mapping Programme.
Fragments of undated possible ring ditches which may relate to a Bronze Age barrow cemetery (and were previously recorded as SHER SUT 124, SUT 125 and SUT 126) are visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs on land to the west of Moor’s Hill Plantation, Sutton. A number of pit, or possible posthole features were also visible, although these may relate to underlying geological marks, and only a few of the more prominent features have been mapped.
It was difficult to be certain of the extent of the archaeology, since there were many geological cropmarks visible in this field, and the photographs were difficult to rectify, hence the features must be viewed with a hint of caution. It is highly likely that there is more than one phase of activity on the site, and the linear ditches which may relate to field boundaries and trackways have been recorded separately (SHER SUT 233). A dense scatter of heavily burnt flints has also been recovered from this field (SHER SUT 032).
