Summary

An archaeological evaluation was carried out at Fornham House, Fornham St Martin prior to the construction of an extension to the existing care home. Two trenches revealed evidence of a trackway that is recorded on the 1884 Ordinance Survey map. The site was heavily disturbed but a shallow irregular shaped pit may have been early post-medieval as it contained only a single sherd of pottery dated 15th-16th century, and animal bone.
