Abstract:
Two day test pit excavations were undertaken in the village of Coddenham in Suffolk annually for six years between 2006 and 2011. In that time a total of 59 1m square test pits were excavated by 213 local school children as part of the Higher Education Field Academy (HEFA) programme run by Access Cambridge Archaeology (ACA) out of the Department of Archaeology at the University of Cambridge. The test pitting in Coddenham revealed a range of activity dating from the later prehistoric period through to the modern day with the earliest activity identified prevalent in the south of the village on the higher ground and overlooking the River Gipping. The village land was likely utilised just as open fields during the Roman period, supporting the town and fort on the River Gipping, known as Combretovium. There has always been a settlement in Coddenham however from the 5th century AD, due to its prominent location along the Gipping valley and connecting the settlement to the Saxon port and town at Ipswich. The village continued to grow into the medieval period, but experienced a slight decline in population, and contracted likely due to the Black Death during the 14th century. As the village recovered it continued to grow and develop into the village seen today.
