Introduction

The Field Team within the Archaeological Service at Suffolk County Council is a self-financing unit with a staff of some 25 experienced archaeologists based in Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich. We regularly carry out over 100 projects a year with the majority being development related, though other projects include research and community based ones as funding sources allow. The development related projects range in size from single house sites up to 50 hectare plus developments, calling for the preparation of reports for Environmental Impact Assessments and subsequent large-scale field evaluations and excavations. To ensure an efficient and cost effective service for our clients much of the post-excavation, or reporting, work is carried out in-house and we also offer high quality specialist finds assessment and analysis on a variety of artefact types.
