Archaeological fieldwalking and metal-detection surveys were carried out on land between Main Road and Felixstowe Road, Martlesham, Suffolk. This was carried out after a geophysical survey that indicated the presence of possible prehistoric and medieval ditches, and prior to a trenched evaluation.

The surveys produced mainly post-medieval finds, but also one sherd of Roman pottery, seven pieces of Roman CBM, one piece of medieval CBM and a copper alloy bolt of possible medieval date. These showed no clear concentrations across the site. The only potential finds cluster was represented by Middle Bronze Age flint tools and possibly associated burnt flints, accumulated along the eastern edge of the field.
