A trench evaluation of Land at Broad Oak Farm and Land at Sturry Application Sites
(“investigation area”) revealed archaeological remains only at the Land at Sturry
Application Site. These were largely focussed in the southern part of the
investigation area. These include several Mesolithic flint scatters, apparently in situ
and ‘sunken’ into the underlying head brickearth. A general background of
prehistoric and undated linear and discrete features were revealed in the southern
area alongside Roman remains in the south-west of the Application Site likely to be
associated with a previously excavated prehistoric and Roman occupation site
adjacent to the western border of the investigation area.
A double-ditched feature in the southern central part of the investigation area is
notable as potentially both military and early Roman.
The southern part of the investigation area lies at the base of a slope leading
towards the River Stour in an area crossed by undulations/dry valleys. Brickearth
deposits and colluvial deposits were accumulated to varying depths in the
undulations and at the base of slope.
The remainder of the investigation area revealed very few potential archaeological
