Full Description

Evaluation trenching revealed a pit containing two sherds of Thetford ware dated to the 10th or 11th century. The pit was only partially seen at the southern end of the trench. From the visible evidence it was sub-circular in shape and measured at depth of 0.30m within the exposed section and continued to an unknown depth. A further trench revealed a small linear ditch of unknown date although it appeared to be relatively modern (S1).
