An Archaeological Evaluation by Trial Trenching at Norwich Road, Kilverstone, Norfolk
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken in advance of the proposed development of two fields at Norwich Road, Kilverstone on the north-eastern outskirts of Thetford, Norfolk (centred TL 8840 8385). Sixteen trenches were excavated, within which several areas of archaeological interest were identified. In the SE field (SMR 34489), a cluster of Neolithic pits was revealed. In addition, towards the north of this field, three trenches contained evidence of Iron Age and Romano-British settlement. In the NW field (SMR25763), an area of in situ Neolithic flint knapping debris was uncovered, preserved underneath what may be medieval ridge and furrow. To the north of this, a post-medieval ‘Suffolk Type’ brick kiln was revealed.
