Type and Period (1)
A roughly rectangular ditched enclosure of possible late prehistoric date can be seen on aerial photographs, located circa 100m to the north of Boyton Hall farm, Boyton parish, centred on circa TM38224652. The enclosure is circa 18 x 15m in size, and is orientated roughly NNE to SSW. The ditch is about 1-2m wide and there may be an entrance visible at the southern corner. There may be a ring ditch feature of about 3.5m diameter visible within the enclosure, but the photographs available are very unclear (see BOY 064). A slightly larger ring ditch may be visible immediately to the east of the enclosure (see BOY 065). However, as the photographs are so unclear, there is a chance that these ring ditches may not be archaeological in origin. The orientation of the site is similar to that of the surrounding modern field boundaries, but the slight deviation from the modern line and the possible association with the ring ditch features and the wide trackway to the west (see BOY 059), leads to an interpretation of later prehistoric or Roman date.
