Abstract

Between the 8th and 12th of October 2018, Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) was commissioned by Anglian Water Services to undertake monitoring of a topsoil strip at the proposed site of a works compound, amounting to a total area of 0.36ha. Metal detecting and surface collection resulted in the recovery of twenty-nine individual finds from topsoil and subsoil deposits. The finds were a mix of ceramic building material (CBM) and various metal artefacts, predominantly dating to the post medieval and modern periods. No pattern to the distribution or type of finds was observed and they are likely present as the result of random discard or accidental loss over periods of sparse human activity.
