Summary

An archaeological evaluation and a continuous monitoring were carried out during the construction of a carpark on RAF Mildenhall, in the parish of Mildenhall. A network of Iron Age ditches were uncovered that appear to form a series of enclosures, that align northwest to southeast before turning northeast with entrances facing to the south. Some moderately large pits were uncovered, which may also have been Iron Age but this dating could not be confirmed. Significant finds included Iron Age pottery, a triangular loomweight and a fired clay slingshot, an unusual find although typical of the period.
