Abstract

Between the 19th and 20th of August 2019, OA East undertook an archaeological trial trench evaluation on land south of Wells Road, Hindringham, Norfolk (TF 9797 3594). A total of four trenches were excavated. The fieldwork identified archaeological features in three of the four trenches in the middle and western parts of the site. The earliest phase of activity was represented by a single ditch of probable late Iron Age date excavated in Trench 4, which yielded a quantity of pottery and burnt flint from this period. A later phase of medieval or post-medieval activity was revealed in the form of a single ditch on the western edge of the site, which was present in Trenches 1 and 3. This feature was perpendicular to the modern road and generally aligned with other boundaries in the surrounding landscape. Only small fragments of undiagnostic pottery were recovered from the top fill of this feature in Trench 1. Overall, the trenching has confirmed the presence of archaeological remains on the site. These remains date from the Iron Age and medieval/post-medieval periods.
