Abstract

Oxford Archaeology East undertook an archaeological evaluation after a geophysical survey at Rabbithill Covert, Lakenheath, Suffolk (TL 7172 8377) in April 2014. Thirty-two trenches were excavated across the site targeting geophysical anomalies and areas of potential identified by the historic environment record. The evaluation revealed a prehistoric landscape including a Bronze Age barrow and inhumation, as well as Mid to Late Bronze Age pottery. Iron Age occupation of the site was also identified, represented by a possible ring ditch and Iron Age boundary ditch. Saxon and medieval pottery was found associated with natural features suggesting the site was under a manuring regime from the 10th-11th centuries onwards.
