During May 2008 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation at the Hilgay Habitat Creation site, Methwold, Norfolk (centred on NGR TL 645 975) on behalf of the Environment Agency. Sixteen trenches were excavated across the site. Six of the trenches targeted anomalies recorded in an earlier geophysical survey of the site, and one targeted a former water-filled pit. There was little correlation between the geophysical survey results and the archaeology encountered. The evaluation revealed a series of six ditches, four pits, two post holes and one tree throw, but no dating was recovered. It is likely that most of the features recorded relate to post-medieval drainage and agricultural use of the site.
