Full Description

An archaeological evaluation by trial trenching was carried out by Suffolk Archaeology CIC at St Mary's Cottage, 120 The Street, Capel St Mary, Suffolk in advance of residential development. The works consisted of a single trench located over the proposed new development footings within the existing garden and identified evidence of post-medieval and modern activity with features mostly relating to landscaping of the area for garden uses. The finds suggest that two main phases were present (post-medieval and modern) with two ditches found (most likely previous property boundaries) two large postholes and two pits. One pit was found to contain large amounts of fired clay which was most likely from demolition or refurbishment of the grade two listed property on the site (S1).
