Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation (eleven trial-trenches) was carried out on land at Tamarisk, 19 The Street, Kirby-le-Soken, in advance of the construction of eight new dwellings, including new access driveways and utilities and slight alterations to the existing dwelling. Ten features were uncovered five ditches, two pits, a gully, a natural feature and a tree throw which were most likely the product of agricultural activity at the site from the 17th to the 20th century. A sherd of 13th- to 16th-century pottery was also recovered, indicating that the site may have witnessed an earlier phase of activity too.
