Full Description

Monitoring carried out during the installation of street lighting at the sewage works on RAF Lakenheath revealed the upper 0.5m of ground to be disturbed. Wind blown grey sand was observed in one of the lamp post pits, which was found to overlay archaeological deposits on the adjoining site, ERL 023. By analogy with this site it is likely that archaeological levels are preserved beneath the area of the street lighting (S1).
