Report Number


Through an examination of the Suffolk HER and National Heritage List for England, a documentary and cartographic search and a site inspection, this DBA has set the NNR within its immediate archaeological landscape.

In general the topographic location of the NNR and the known archaeology of the area suggest that there is a moderate to high potential for encountering archaeological remains within the NNR, ranging from the Palaeolithic to modern periods, and that such deposits are likely to largely be in a moderate to high state of preservation, but also shallow and highly vulnerable to any change in the landscape. Numerous earthworks of likely mixed but uncertain date are also evident across the NNR.
