Abstract:
An archaeological evaluation of a 5400 square metre area on former gardens/farmland was undertaken between 21 May and 2 June 2014 in response to a planning requirement set by Andy Thomas, Senior Archaeologist, prior to the development of the site nineteen dwellings with associated services and access. Fifteen linear trenches, totaling 160m in length and representing a 5% sample of the total Proposed Development Area were opened using a 20 tonne 360 degree tracked excavator with toothless ditching bucket under archaeological supervision. A further 17 test-pits (1.8m x 1m) were opened across the site on a ten metre grid to characterize the artefact content of the topsoil. All exposed trench bases and spoil were scanned by an experienced metal detectorist. The trenches were cleaned and planned using a Leica 1200 GPS Smart Rover (GPS). The archaeological survey revealed 29 features in 7 of the trenches opened. Two areas of archaeological significance were recorded. Trenches 7 and 12 revealed linear features containing Mid Iron Age pottery and a largely complete 15th century transitional pot (figure 2, area A). Features in trenches 9, 10, 12 and 15 containing sherds of Ely and Hedingham wares were dated to the 10th - 12th century. The remainder of the trenches produced only those features relating to the sites history as gardens and allotments. A linear feature was recorded, aligned east west parallel to Church Street in trenches 1, 5 and 6. A small sherd of Ely ware from trench 1 dated the linear feature to the 12th century. It is suggested that this feature forms a Medieval boundary to Church Street. Additionally, metal detecting of the spoil above the linear feature recovered a late Medieval buckle, decorative bronze pendent and a possible Medieval lead fishing weight.
