Summary

An archaeological monitoring was carried out on land at Framlingham Castle Bowls Club, Castle Street, Framlingham during the excavation of foundations for an extension to the clubhouse.

A number of features of archaeological interest were recorded during the monitoring work. A thick deposit of re-deposited natural was recorded which may be the up-cast from the excavation of the adjacent castle ditch. A number of large cut features, possibly pits, cut this deposit. The pits were sealed by a thick deposit of organic garden soil and the current lawn. A small assemblage of finds from the medieval, post medieval and early modern periods was collected during the work.
