Summary

A desk-based assessment of a proposed mixed use development was carried out to assess the archaeological potential of the site, which covered an area of approximately 2700 square metres bounded by existing developments to the north, northeast and southeast and Duke Street, onto which the site fronts, to the west.

The assessment included an examination of existing records held in the Suffolk Sites and Monuments Record, a documentary survey and examination of borehole/test pit data. It concluded that the site had a low to moderate
potential for deposits relating to the early prehistoric period, very low potential for Roman evidence, low to moderate potential for the presence of Saxon deposits or features and moderate to high potential for medieval or post-medieval deposits or features.
