Abstract:
In September 2020, Archaeological Solutions Ltd (AS) carried out an archaeological evaluation at the Lake Lothing Third Crossing Lowestoft, Suffolk (NGR 653843 292985; Figs. 1 and 2). The evaluation was undertaken in compliance with the initial requirement of a planning condition attached to planning approval for the construction of a new lake crossing (Suffolk County Council Planning Ref. SCC/0040/20). It was required by Suffolk County Council based on the advice of Suffolk County Council Archaeological Service (SCC AS). The evaluation revealed a significant depth of made ground in the eastern sector of the site overlying organic alluvial deposits approximately 2m below the current ground surface. The western side of the site appears to have been truncated, rather than raised, with only 0.40m of made ground directly overlying the natural sands. The only features present were of modern date. The organic alluvial deposits likely relate to a former inlet or area or marshland, as has been suggested by local historians, within the vicinity of the older core of Lowestoft prior to the medieval development of the High Street. The organic silty deposits appeared to oxidise upon being exposed, which may theoretically suggest that the conditions would favour the preservation of potential wooden remains associated with the exploitation of marsh channels (e.g. boats and structures). Nonetheless, the previous borehole surveys did not indicate that significant peat deposits are present within the area. The evaluation enables the extent of the inlet or marsh on the site to be understood so that appropriate mitigation can be implemented, taking into account the overall limited archaeological potential, the conditions present on the site, and the impacts of the development.
