An evaluation was carried out at Sweyn Close, Thetford, Grid ref TL 8643 8226. Twelve trenches were excavated within the proposed development area, with six located across the back gardens of properties of Sweyn Close, and a further six within land to the north of Sweyn Close. The trenches revealed widespread quarrying activity, probably relating to 19th century lime extraction for agricultural use. A single Bronze Age pit was identified within the northern part of the development area, no other archaeological features or deposits were recorded.
