Between 4h and 5th March 2013, Oxford Archaeology East carried out an archaeological evaluation on Land off Ringwood Close, Little Melton, Norfolk. This took the form of eight 30m x 1.85m trenches and one 11.5m x 1.85m trench across the proposed development area. A total of three linear ditches, probably dating to the modern period, were revealed across the site. No artefacts were recovered from these features. The topsoil extending across the site yielded one flint artefact from the Final Upper Palaeolithic and three flint artefacts from the Early Neolithic. The lack of finds from the topsoil or subsoil or features predating the modern period probably reflects the use of this land as 'common' for some considerable time before the Enclosure Act of AD 1814.
