Summary. An archaeological evaluation (two trial-trenches) was carried out on land at 16 Martyns Rise, Long Melford, Suffolk in advance of the construction of two new dwellings. The site was just outside the village of Long Melford, which was a substantial Roman settlement. Cropmarks were found southeast of the site and interpreted as a possible villa. There is also evidence of medieval and postmedieval activity nearby to the site. Despite this, no archaeological remains or features were found during the evaluation.
