Full Description

In the east of the site evaluation trenches identified three linear features and two pits. One ditch contained pottery dating to the mid 13th century. It is possible that the medieval remains relate to the environs of Leiston Abbey 400m to the north, or to activity alongside the road running betwee it and the village of Leiston to the south. On the south side a modern pit was found to contain the bones of buried domestic fowl (S1).
