Full Description

Following the laying of pipe trench 6, machine tracks were excavated to investigate evidence of a field system at Ickworth Park. Six ditches were trenched with one producing finds dated C17/C18. Odd sherds of C13/C14 date were also recovered. Evidence suggested some of the fields had been ploughed and some had not. Also suggested part of pre-enclosure field system does survive within the park (S1).
