Abstract

Between the 18th November and 20th December 2013, Oxford Archaeology East carried out an archaeological excavation on Land Adjacent to Woodgate Farm, Aylsham, Norfolk (TG 1794 2634). Two areas were excavated, totalling c.1.7ha, although only limited archaeological features were identified.
These comprised two pits, eight ditches and over 100 tree throws and possible pits. One of the pits was Early Neolithic in date and contained a significant quantity of pottery and flint, the other was Iron Age and a smaller assemblage of pottery was found within this. The ditches were Roman, medieval and post-medieval and all appear to represent field boundary ditches. In addition, a complete Beaker vessel was recovered from one of the tree throws.
