Type and Period (1)
An archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Cotswold Archaeology between June and July 2008 at the request of WSP Environmental UK at Hatchfield Farm, Newmarket, Suffolk. One hundred and two trenches were excavated. Despite the potential for archaeological features and deposits of Prehistoric and Roman date to survive on the site no features pre-dating the 20th century were noted. These modern features included former field boundaries and animal burials. The flint concentrations recorded during a prior fieldwalking survey were observed to lie within the course of a former river system, suggesting that post-depositional processes responsible for the apparent clustered pattern of flint recorded during the previous survey.
Note: prior to boundary change site was in Exning parish.
