Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation (two trial-trenches) was carried out at Coopers, Castle Orchard, Bungay, Suffolk in advance of the proposed construction of a new residential development. Two pits were uncovered which were modern in date. Household refuse and cinders/ashes present in these features suggest that they were used for domestic waste disposal purposes, in keeping with the location of the pits to the rear of the dwellings and businesses located along St Mary’s Road. Although the absence of closely-datable finds precludes accurate dating of the pits it is likely that they date to the 19th century.
