Summary. Archaeological recording was carried out on land to the east of The Street, Assington, Suffolk during groundworks for ten new dwellings. Located close to the medieval church of St Edmund and Assington Hall, the development site is in an area of prehistoric, medieval and post-medieval activity and close to a number of undated cropmarks. Archaeological evaluation in March 2018 had revealed a Roman or medieval pit, a possible medieval ditch, three post-medieval/modern features (a boundary ditch, ditch and pit) and fourteen undated features. Archaeological monitoring revealed a late medieval ditch, a post-medieval/modern boundary ditch and eleven undated features (ten pits and one ditch).
