Abstract:
An evaluation was carried out at the proposed site of a village hall with a car park and playing fields. The site lay immediately south-south-west of the precinct wall of Binham Priory, which was founded in 1097. Archaeological work in the surrounding area had been limited to field-walking and metal-detecting, but had recorded artefacts representing the Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Romano-British, Middle and Late Saxon, medieval and post-medieval periods. The evaluation comprised a field-walking and metal-detector survey and the excavation of trial trenches. Artefacts dating to the late Neolithic/Bronze Age period and of Romano-British, Middle Saxon, medieval and post-medieval date were recovered during fieldwalking. The distribution of struck and fire-crazed flints suggested late Neolthic/Bronze Age occupation in the near vicinity. A concentration of struck flints occurred in the western part of the surveyed area. Archaeological features within the two evaluation trenches took the form of ditches, pits and post-holes dating to the Romano-British period. Features in Trench 1 produced a considerabe quantity of pottery and animal bone; spatially this coincided with a concentration of pottery of the same period located during the fieldwalking survey. The presence of imbrex (rooftile), brick and floor tile fragments all suggested that a building of high status - perhaps a villa - stood nearby. Fieldwalking did not identify any significant concentrations of finds indicating medieval or post-medieval occupation. Finds of these periods probably represented manuring of arable land. [Au(adp)]
