From 1st February to 19h February 20010, OA East carried out an intermittent archaeological watching brief on land adjacent to the west of Temple Bridge on the southern bank of the River Lark at TL 7577 7290. The archaeological monitoring was carried out during construction of a cofferdam and associated drainage ditch. No archaeological features or artefacts were uncovered during work on these features, although on higher ground, adjacent to the south, artefacts were found in the backfill of rabbit burrows and mole hills within a c.90m by 40m area. These consisted of four worked flint pieces comprising a side scraper and three broadly Neolithic debitage flakes, and 11 sherds of Iron Age and Roman pottery. These burrows/mole hills were more than 1m above the floodplain on either a natural scarp or an earthwork. During 2009, in the same location during earlier works in the watching brief, twelve flint pieces and three sherds of Late Iron Age and two Early Roman pottery sherds were found (Atkins 2009).
