Abstract

Oxfbrd Archaeology (OA) carried oul a preliminary Phase I non-invasive field evaluation along the preferred route (Option B) of the new Thetford Southern Link Road (Centred NGR TL 860810) on behalf of David Huskisson Associates. The non-invasive evaluation comprised fieldwalking, metal-detecting and geophysícal survey within the approximate 0.8 km south easlern extent of the preferred route. In addition, an archaeological monitoring and recording action was maintained during geo-technical works undertaken along the complete 1.8km extent of the preferred route. Extensive later disturbance, possibly associated with the development of RAF Barnham, was apparent throughout the study area, although, a low density of prehistoric worked flint was recovered. and a limited number of positive anomalies, possibly representing archaeological deposits, were recorded by geophysical survey.
