Type and Period (3)
Much tile including "many fragments hypocaust tiles and Romano British type tiles and two tesserae cubes found on field just across from, and west of, the church tower" (S2, Basil's notes for Ipswich Museum's record maps Suffolk sheet LXXIV SW & LXXIII NE). Also suggests these finds relate to a possible building on site and records ashes in addition to other finds and adds 'site faced due south, somewhat under the hill' (S2, entry date probably 1949).
Two tesserae (S1 - note the 1977 accession date for these may relate to the material that came from Basil's collection after his death).
Hypocaust and tesserae suggest possibly part of villa complex?
Apparently built over (1983).
For another reference to Roman tile 'near the church' see church HER entry (MKE 007).
