Summary

In July and August 2017 detailed geophysical surveys were undertaken within the bailey of Bungay Castle, Bungay, Suffolk. Three techniques were requested by Historic England to be deployed over the 0.24hectare grass covered bailey, comprising fluxgate gradiometer, earth resistance meter and ground penetrating radar surveys.

The three instruments highlighted a narrow range of geophysical anomalies that have significant archaeological potential, including in-situ structural remains that may include walls, floors and a potential well. Anomalies indicative of robbed-out or service trench runs, rubbish pits or geological deposits, demolition or levelling deposits and an extant Tarmacadam drive were further prospected.
