Summary

An excavation was carried out prior to the construction of housing and related services and driveways on land to the south of a bungalow and immediately east of The Street in Poslingford, Suffolk. This revealed pits, postholes and a ditch of 12th-13th century date, which produced medieval pottery, roof tile, animal bone, fired clay, iron nails and a shears blade. There were also environmental residues indicating hearth/midden waste, burnt flooring/bedding and sewage or animal ordure. The features were well preserved below imported and buried topsoil deposits and are probably contemporary with the construction of the church, located just to the south-west.
