Between the 6th and 18th September 2021, Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) conducted an archaeological evaluation at Land off Snow’s Lane, Chedgrave, Norfolk (TM 36136 99997). A total of twenty 50m long trenches, which represented a 3.5% sample of the c.5.2ha site, were excavated within a proposed planning application for 76 dwellings.
These trenches revealed evidence for possible Roman stock-keeping enclosures or agricultural plots in the northern part of the site which were probably established during the 1st century AD. The results corresponded with the geophysical survey undertaken by Magnitude Surveys in 2021. The site was probably abandoned between the mid-3rd to early 4th century AD with no succeeding Anglo-Saxon or medieval activity. There was evidence for a post-medieval field system having been established in the southern part of the site which respected the alignment of Snow’s Lane and was possibly associated with a pond. Overall, the archaeological works have confirmed the presence of preserved archaeological remains across the entirety of the site.
