PROJECT DETAILS A detailed magnetometer survey was carried out by Archaeological Surveys Ltd, at the request of New Hall Properties (Eastern) Ltd, within an area of land at Gislingham in Suffolk. The survey located a number of very weakly positive linear anomalies, and although it is possible that they relate to cut features, their weak response and lack of coherent morphology prevent confident interpretation. Several discrete positive responses within the field appear to relate to pit-like features that may be anthropogenic in origin. The locations of two relatively recently removed field boundaries can also be seen within the results, as can zones of magnetic debris which may relate to dumped magnetically thermoremnant material around the field margins.
