During the construction of hardstanding on land adjacent to Howlett Way, Thetford, topsoil was removed from the site and stored in two separate locations. Due to the sensitive location of the site in relation to previously known archaeological remains a condition requiring archaeological investigation was placed on the planning consent for the development.

The main aim of the project was to maximise the recovery of artefactual materials contained within the excavated spoil heaps and to attempt a reconstruction of the history and use of the site with reference to these materials. During August 2002 Mark Hinman and Chris Montague conducted an intensive scan of the spoil by hand and with metal detectors, aided by mechanical excavator.

No significant artefactual materials were recovered.
