Evaluation trenching along the northern edge and across the southern half of the Satellite Earthstation compound in the north-eastern corner of the BT Research Laboratories on Martlesham Heath revealed one small area with evidence of Late Bronze Age/Early Iron Age ( c900-600BC) activity with two small pits containing sherds of 'Darmsden style' pottery close to the barrow sites that were excavated in 1974. The remainder of the evaluation area contained a few features of unknown date and function though some could have been caused by animal or tree disturbances.
