Summary

Rescue excavations at Lackford Bridge Quarry, West Stow, undertaken in the winter of 1978-9 by Suffolk Archaeological Unit in advance of sand and gravel quarrying, produced evidence of multiperiod settlement remains consisting of pits, post-holes, sunken-featured buildings, enclosure ditches and curvilinear gullies, dating to the early and late Neolithic, Iron Age and/or Roman and early Anglo- Saxon periods. The archive of records and finds was not completed after excavation due to lack of resources and only limited post-excavation assessment and analysis took place.

This report presents and assessment of the site and was funded by the historic environment element of the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund, administered by English Heritage.
