Significance of the results:

Summary. An archaeological evaluation (two trial-trenches) was carried out on land at Powney Street, Milden, Suffolk in advance of the construction of two new dwellings. The site was located within an area defined as ancient rolling farmlands in the Suffolk Landscape. Nearby archaeological findspots indicate prehistoric and Roman activity as well as the 12th- to 13th-century small motte and bailey castle two fields to the west of the development area. Despite this, a post-medieval/ modern post-hole was the only feature present.
