Type and Period (1)
A ditched field boundary of probable medieval or post medieval date is visible as a cropmark on aerial photographs to the north-west of St Cross South Elmham village, centred on circa TM 290845. The cropmarks indicate that the boundary may have included a ditch and a bank, possibly crowned by a hedge. The interpretation of a medieval or post medieval date is based on the boundary's relationship with extant field patterns and it's morphological similarities to the field boundaries marked on the First and Second Edition Ordnance Survey maps of circa 1884 and 1904. The occurrence of medieval pottery adjacent to a possible small enclosure attached to the boundary (SEY 009) my indicate the former location of a small house or farmstead. (S1)
