Abstract

Between 18th February 2014 and 21st February 2014 Oxford Archaeology East carried out an archaeological evaluation on land north of Stonehouse Road, Salhouse, Norfolk (TG 29933 15550). Five 50m long trenches and two 25m long trenches were excavated, targeting anomalies identified on a geophysical survey within two fields (GSB 2013). A possible Middle Bronze Age enclosure, a Middle Bronze Age boundary ditch, possible Iron Age ring gullies, Roman pits, an undated well and undated boundary ditches were found in the trenches within the southern field. Trenches in the northern field were found to contain no archaeology. An assemblage of pottery dating from Late Neolithic through to Iron Age was recovered from features on site, as well as a small assemblage of worked flints indicative of tool use as opposed to production, including a long end scraper dated to the Mesolithic.
