Abstract

Between 1st November and 12th December 2010, Oxford Archaeology East carried out an Archaeological Excavation at Moulton Paddocks and a Strip, Map and Record at Moulton Gallop, Newmarket, Suffolk. The Paddocks site (Suffolk HER MUN038) uncovered a Late Neolithic pit situated to one side of a struck flint mound of the same date, with satellite pits containing either complete pottery vessels or cremations, dating to the Early Bronze Age. In addition, Early Iron Age storage pits containing large assemblages of pottery and re-worked Late Neolithic flint were recorded. Features on the site have been dated by finds assemblages and radiocarbon dates to the Late Neolithic, Early Bronze Age and Early Iron Age. A significant Late Neolithic lithic assemblage was also recovered. The Gallop site (Suffolk HER MUN039) revealed evidence of further Early Iron Age pits and two curvilinear pit-dug ditches which would most likely have formed a circle. This ring ditch monument contained struck flint dating to the Late Neolithic period, potentially contemporary with the Late Neolithic features from the Paddocks
