Summary

An archaeological investigation consisting of fieldwalking and metal detecting survey, followed by evaluation by trial trench was carried out on land at Brick Kiln Farm, Hemingstone in advance of a proposal to develop the site. No pre-modern evidence was recovered during the two walkover surveys but archaeological deposits were identified during the evaluation. Trench 1 in the northern part of the main field contained features of early medieval date, including a cluster of post-holes likely to form a part of a building of some kind. The finds associated with these features were of a domestic nature, implying occupation either on or very close to the site during the 11th-12th century.
