Summary

An archaeological evaluation of land at Washington Street, Beck Row, Mildenhall, identified evidence of Late Iron Age and Roman occupation, principally consisting of ditch systems together with occasional pits. The dense scatter of features indicates a high level of activity, which is clearly an extension of the multi-period site MNL 502 that lies directly to the north.

The evaluation also identified a natural, peat-infilled hollow, a typical feature of the natural fenedge landscape. There was no indication of any recent waterlogging and the peat deposits were desiccated and of limited potential for environmental analysis.
