Summary

Archaeological monitoring was carried out during excavation of new service trenches along the northern edge of Munitions Area 5, RAF Lakenheath, during May-July 2013 in order to record any surviving archaeological deposits and to examine the extent of airfield disturbance in this area. Due to the shallow nature of the services only limited information could be recovered, although dried peat deposits were identified in several areas and it seems likely that previous landscaping and preparatory ground works for the airfield munitions store have significantly affected the higher soil levels across much of the area examined.
