Description

Following a rapid walkover survey of the Suffolk coast and inter-tidal estuaries, nine of the sites recorded were identified as potentially archaeologically significant. These were subject to further work, not only to better understand them as individual sites, but also to be able to provide a strong curatorial response to coastal planning as it impacts on the historic environment. All sites were visited at a suitable low tide to ensure that surviving structures were fully exposed and visible for as long as possible to allow adequate time for recording. Each feature was planned in its entirety where possible.Two samples per phase from each timber structure and were sent for assessment. No surviving timbers were suitable for dendrochronology (S1).
