Type and Period (4)
A presumably Roman salt production site visible as a dense scatter of briquetage (and tile?).
1993-4: found during fieldwalking survey by Andy Richmond et al. Details and mapping in (S1).
For cropmarks and field-walked artefact scatters from same field see LCS 032 & 033.
March 2014. Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Beauty National Mapping Programme.
This site is just outside of the NMP project area (falling within the previously undertaken Suffolk Coast NMP area). However a brief assessment of the aerial photographs did not reveal a prominent mound in the area of the briquetage finds and some other channels and mounds that may also relate to salt production. These features are most clearly visible on (S2).
