1950: Iron Age hearth and Hut site. An extensive spread of ashblackened sand revealed at a depth of four feet in a sewei trench opened in one ofthe dry lateral valleys on the south side of the Orwell-Gipping valley was excavated by Messrs. Spencer and West in 1950. Although from the nature of the site and the subsequent growth of young trees over it no data could be recovered as to the plan or dimensions, the spot had obviously been occupied by some form of dwelling. A sling pellet of baked clay, triangular clay loom-weights, and broken pottery scattered over the floor dated the occupation to the later phase of the pre-Roman Iron Age. An Anglo-Saxon bronze ring brooch was found in the overlying soil (S1-S3).
Also Mesolithic Microlith and Flake, (S4).
