Summary

An archaeological evaluation was carried out at the Waveney House Hotel, a 16th century structure (with later additions) standing on the southern bank of the River Waveney. A single linear trench and a small test pit were machine excavated. This revealed dumped deposits of material containing a small amount of mixed artefacts, dating from the Saxon period up to the Late Medieval period, on top of river silts. This suggests that the area of the trench is likely to be reclaimed marsh and that this reclamation is of presumably a Late Medieval date.
