Summary

A trial trenched evaluation was conducted at land adjacent to Halfboys, Ixworth Rd, Norton. A single ditch and two large pits were recorded across the northern end of this site. All three features were associated with pottery of 16th to 18th century date. As this is the possible date range for Halfboys house, these features are possibly associated with this building or with other similar settlement. No evidence was found of Roman use or occupation, given that the A1088 adjacent is likely to be a Roman road. The site appears to be slightly lower than the surrounding fields and the road so the area might have been lowered or truncated in the past.
