Type and Period (2)
An archaeological evaluation was carried out on a parcel of land to the north of Station Road, Lakenheath, Suffolk, in advance of the construction of a new school. Eighteen trenches, totalling 540m in length, were excavated. Within one trench a ditch and a pit were recorded. The pit contained a single sherd of early medieval pottery, although this is likely to be residual in what is probably a post-medieval feature. The ditch is likely to be post-medieval in date. The site of what is probably a late post-medieval sand and gravel extraction pit was also noted (S1).
