Abstract:
From May to November 2012 Britannia Archaeology Ltd undertook an archaeological trial trench evaluation on land at Browns Fen, Stoke Ferry, Norfolk in advance of mineral extraction. This evaluation was able to build on the earlier work and establish a distinct pattern of early Iron Age activity comprising the disposal of domestic waste material along the edge of the former Fen/marsh environment and a small number of pits also used for the same purpose. This activity would suggest some form of small scale settlement activity in the immediate vicinity of the site, probably to the west and/or south, higher up the slope. The ring-ditch feature present in Trench 1 may have been a domestic structure associated with this settlement, or equally could be associated with funerary activity. A cluster of 33 undated post and stakeholes in Trench 19 may also relate to structural features, however the paucity of finds and lack of discernible pattern may also suggest that they were natural solution hollows. A very small assemblage of finds dating to the early Bronze Age, Neolithic and possibly the Upper Palaeolithic periods were recovered, but these tended to occur in Iron Age contexts and were thus classed as residual finds. No later Iron Age finds or indeed any finds until the post-medieval period were recovered, suggesting that settlement activity at the edge of the Wissey Embayment in this area largely ceased, however the APS evaluation in 2004 indicates that some activity continued into the Roman period.
