Abstract:
Over a period of two days in December 2011, a programme of community fieldwalking was undertaken in two fields, known as Upper Church Field and the Lays and Churchyard Field to the west of the Hamlet of Brundon and situated just west of the town of Sudbury. The fieldwalking programme was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of the Managing a Masterpiece programme in the Stour Valley and enabled nearly 70 local residents and school children from the surrounding area to take part. The project was supervised by Access Cambridge Archaeology at the University of Cambridge. The two fields were sited on the higher ground overlooking both the River Stour to the east and the Belchamp Brook to the north and suggest that the site saw quite a bit of prehistoric activity with evidence for flint tool production from the Mesolithic period onwards. No Roman pottery was identified and only a single sherd of Late Anglo Saxon pot was recorded that does point to some of the early village origins may have been on this area of high ground, which also saw limited use through the medieval period. The site remained as fields through the post medieval and later with probably intermittent use.
