Summary

An archaeological evaluation was carried out on land west of Norwich Road, Scole, to assess the impact of advance of a proposed residential and community infrastructure development. The trenching identified only limited archaeological evidence for past activity in the site, with features primarily relating to medieval or post-medieval field systems and a 19th century structure. There was minimal evidence for any activity prior to the medieval period and in particular no evidence for occupation extending north from the known Iron Age/Roman settlement, or for medieval roadside occupation (although trenching immediately adjacent to the road was limited).
