Summary

Metal detecting, monitoring and GPS survey of two rotavated plots and one topsoil stripped plot were undertaken at Cranwich Camp, Norfolk, which was an inter-war unemployment camp and then a WWII military training camp. These works recovered fifty-eight small finds, including three medieval coins, three military buttons, one Great Western Railway button and an implement for cleaning military uniforms. The foundation of a concrete building slab was recorded, as well as traces of several other structures, including Nissen huts. A post-medieval pottery fragment and a later prehistoric flint were also found.
