Summary

In November and December 2016 Suffolk Archaeology Community Interest Company undertook a detailed fluxgate gradiometer survey on land at Norton Road, Thurston, Suffolk. An arable field comprising c.15 hectares of arable land was prospected for anomalies of archaeological derivation.

The detailed fluxgate gradiometer survey recorded a variety of geophysical anomalies, including those indicative of archaeological pits, relic field boundaries and a linear area of magnetic disturbance interpreted as a potential trackway. Anomalies of geological origin were further prospected. The results of this non-intrusive survey do not suggest that the site contains archaeological deposits of major importance.
