Between 6th and 23rd July 2020, Oxford Archaeology East was commissioned by Anglian Water to conduct archaeological monitoring at Anglian Water Scheme WAT-07156. This work took the form of a Strip, Map and Sample excavation at the site of a proposed permanent compound at Horstead Water Tower, Norfolk. These works revealed a group of three urned and three unurned cremation burials pits of Middle Bronze Age date in the western part of the excavated area. This funerary site is a significant addition to the growing corpus of Early Bronze Age cremation sites coming to light in Norfolk as a result of development work.
