Summary

Monitoring of a foul drainage pipe trench on RAF Lakenheath, within the parish of Eriswell in Suffolk, revealed a Roman skeleton with evidence of a coffin stain and several coffin nails. Additionally several ditches are thought to be Roman, relating to the occupation seen at the northern end of the pipe trench, whilst a limited quantity of later prehistoric worked flint and pottery indicate a low level of later prehistoric occupation in this area.
