Between the 16th and 18th September 2013, OA East conducted an archaeological excavation over a c.220m² area at Plot 1, land adjacent, Boyton Hall, Haverhill CB9 7TA.
The site is located on clay till, on relatively high ground at 103m OD, overlooking the River Stour which lies some 0.7km to the south-west. The excavation has shown that there was part of a Late Iron Age to Roman settlement within the site dating to c.1st century BC/AD with three phases of activity identified. Features comprised part of a probable Late Iron Age round house, an enclosure and an Early Roman boundary ditch. Within the latter there was a seemingly primary assemblage of domestic waste comprising fine locally made coarse ware pottery, animal bone and a little oyster shell.
The only other activity within the site were two probable post-medieval boundary ditches.
