Summary

An excavation was undertaken on the site of the redevelopment of Dormitory 937 at RAF Lakenheath. This site lies on the east side of the Norwich Road immediately north of the 1997 cemetery site, ERL 104. The excavation revealed a network of ditches apparently dating to the Roman and Saxon periods (both Early Anglo-Saxon and Middle Saxon pottery were recovered) as well as some pits. The topography was undulating with natural sand-filled hollows evident across the site.
