Full description

September 2002 - January 2003. Fieldwalking, metal detecting and geophysical survey. Bacton to King's Lynn Transco pipeline plot number 120.
An area of raised magnetic disturbance corresponded with a rubble spread including worked stone. The spread may represent the in-situ remains of a demolished building. Metal detecting survey found a number of objects including a medieval pilgrim's ampulla and a thimble. Fieldwalking yielded a flint blade, flake and pieces of burnt flint, as well as medieval and post-medieval pot sherds.
