Abstract

Between 7th and 10th February 2017, Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) conducted an archaeological evaluation at land off Broomfield Road, Stoke Holy Cross, Norfolk (centred TG 23956 01617). Fourteen evaluation trenches were excavated, each 40m in length. Six of the trenches revealed dispersed linear and discrete archaeological features, comprising post-medieval field boundary ditches and gullies, and associated small pits and post-holes. Whilst the only finds recovered from the site were residual Neolithic flints and two fragments of unidentifiable metalwork, most of the ditches and gullies can be directly related to post-medieval field divisions. Two of the boundaries correspond to 19th century field divisions depicted on the 1844 Stoke Holy Cross tithe map and the 1887 Ordnance Survey six-inch first edition map, whilst others correspond to boundaries on the Ordnance Survey maps between 1906 and the late 1970s.
