Abstract

A small archaeological excavation was carried out on 1-14th of March 2016 at Eriswell 2 Site Extension Scheme, A1065, Eriswell, Suffolk prior to development by Anglian Water. The purpose of excavation was to further analyse the remains of WWII Prisoner of War Camp 85 Victoria located in the footprint of the proposed development following on from an earlier evaluation. The excavation recorded the foundations and associated services of several structures comprising possible living huts, shower/drying room and kitchen. An inner perimeter fence separating the prisoners' and the guards' compounds was also located. An interview with two local residents and a search of the National Archives were conducted as part of the social history research for the site.
