Between 24 April and 9 May 2017 Oxford Archaeology East conducted an archaeological evaluation consisting of thirty trenches on two fields east of Fairfield Road, Framlingham, Suffolk (centred on TM 2887 6298).
The evaluation has found archaeological activity in proximity to the medieval centre of Framlingham. The southern field had a few medieval and post medieval drainage ditches and a watering hole. Several drainage gullies were also observed in the northern field. The main centre of activity, dating to high to late medieval periods, included two stone surfaces, several parallel ditches and three possible watering holes/ponds and concentrated along Fairfield Road on the western edge of the northern field. The presence of water features, surfaces and a lack of standing structures implies animal husbandry activity. The site may be the location of medieval cattle market or a fair in Framlingham.
The site also found two features of probable Saxon date.
