Abstract:
A total of 47 1m square test pits were excavated over five seasons from properties and fields in and around the village of Chediston in east Suffolk between 2006 and 2011. The excavations were undertaken as part of the Higher Education Field Academy (HEFA) programme developed by Access Cambridge Archaeology (ACA) who are based within the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Cambridge. The test pit excavations revealed a range of finds dating from the later prehistoric period, the Neolithic and Bronze Age through to the 19th and 20th centuries. The village of Chediston developed during the 9th-10th centuries and was considered to be large at the time of the Domesday Survey. A single late Saxon structure was also uncovered from one test pit opposite the church. Outlying settlements however were also on the rise through the medieval period, including Chediston Green that came into existence would have rivalled Chediston village in terms of size. This dispersed formation of settlement continued through the medieval, with only a slight shift in the focus back to around the church during the later medieval, potentially due to the Black Death, and into the post medieval, including the numerous outlying farmsteads that remain a character of the settlement today.
