Summary

An archaeological evaluation was carried out on land opposite The Bungalow, Padnal, Littleport as a condition on a planning application relating to a proposed housing development. Five 20m long trenches were excavated, identifying a number of linear features and a single pit, none of which produced any secure dating evidence, although a fragment of probable Roman building material provided a terminus post quem for the upper fill of a large east-west orientated ditch identified in two of the trenches. The features observed are likely to be associated with a series of linears identified during an evaluation immediately east of the site in 2002.
