Abstract:
A detailed fluxgate gradiometer survey was undertaken by Britannia Archaeology Ltd to the east of the A137 at Bourne Hill, Wherstead Suffolk. Despite the relatively high susceptibility of the magnetic background a wide range of anomalies were recorded. The two most intriguing responses are the curvilinear anomalies, it is possible that they may be potential ring ditches or drip-gullies. Thirty positive discrete anomalies present throughout the dataset have been interpreted as being of a probable geological nature, although an archaeological cause cannot be ruled out. One of the two negative linear anomalies recorded may demarcate the location of a bank, the second is likely to be of geological origin. An irregular broad positive anomaly is also likely to be of a geological nature, being located at the top of a contour surrounding an extant depression. Eight areas of magnetic disturbance were present in the dataset, those centrally located may be worth targeting to reveal whether they have an archaeological origin. Iron spike responses were the most common anomaly recorded, indicating the presence of ferrous material buried within the topsoil.
