Abstract:
Archaeological evaluation was undertaken on the Naunton Hall Estate in Rendlesham to test the character and degree of preservation of the subsoil archaeology in two fields that had previously been subject to intensive metal-detecting and geophysical survey. These surveys indicated extensive and high status Anglo-Saxon activity which can be related to the reference in Bede to a 'vicus regius' at Rendlesham in the 7th century and represent a residence of those buried at Sutton Hoo about 3.5 miles to the south-west. Suffolk County Council have been managing the survey project since 2008, in which time 143 hectares have been systematically surveyed. The metal detected finds suggest the presence of high status settlement, craft working and trade dating to the Anglo-Saxon period, with particular foci across individual fields. One of the notable features of the magnetometry results was a change in the character of the apparent archaeology from a landscape dominated by linear features and enclosures south of Naunton Hall Farm, to one consisting predominantly of individual pits, with finds indicative of 5th-7th century occupation, cremation and inhumation burials in the fields north of the farm. The aim of the evaluation was to test the result of the survey and establish the quality and preservation of the archaeological features below the ploughsoil. To this end seven trenches were excavated in autumn 2013 and spring 2014 within two fields, RLM 055 (in Sand Walk field RLM 044, north of the hall) and RLM 054 (in Park Field, south of the hall). Preliminary interpretation suggested potential settlement and burial of the early Anglo-Saxon period in RLM 055 and enclosed settlement and elite activity including metal working, particularly in the 6th - 8th centuries in RLM 054, with a definite later Roman background.
