Abstract:
In August 2013 Britannia Archaeology Ltd (BA) undertook an archaeological trial trench evaluation on 46 - 48 High Street, Needham Market, Suffolk (NGR TM 089 550) in advance of the residential development of the site. Background research for the project indicated that evidence for Medieval and Post-medieval back-yard/industrial activity associated with the buildings of the Medieval Town Core would most likely be encountered. The evaluation revealed five phases of activity, the most recent phase comprised the laying of the concrete car park. This surface was removed prior to excavation of the trial trenches. A second phase of modern activity comprising rubbish pits 1006 and 1008 cut through Levelling Layer 1000. This layer 1000 formed the third phase of activity truncating and sealing existing modern features and preparing the site for the laying of the concrete. The fourth phase of modern activity comprised rubbish pits and an early modern wall (1004) relating to structures associated with the buildings fronting High Street. The final phase relates to earlier agricultural activity and was a homogenous subsoil layer (1001). Despite the high potential for medieval and post medieval back-yard/industrial activity no features predating the early modern period were present.
