Summary

An archaeological excavation in advance of housing development on land off of Chalkstone Way, Haverhill identified evidence of three phases of limited activity in the prehistoric and postmedieval periods. Prehistoric features consisted of two isolated Bronze Age pits and a scatter of Early Iron Age pits and a single ditch. The post-medieval activity consisted of a series of linear parallel ditches, thought to relate to agricultural drainage.
