Summary

An archaeological monitoring was carried out on land at the rear of The Homestead, Rickinghall, during the groundworks for a new house. The site lies close to an area from where a Roman inhumation burial, RKS 011 was recorded. Archaeological evaluation and monitoring in 2003-4 on the former garden of The Homestead prior to the redevelopment of the whole site identified post-medieval pits and undated pits identified as possible former mineral extraction features.

Seven more similar features were found during this monitoring, all undated and which, when mapped alongside those of RKS 030 form a north-south band c.28m wide.
