Abstract :
In response to a proposed churchyard extension at Church Loke, located to the south of the former churchyard boundary of the church of SS. Peter and Paul, trial excavations were followed by full excavation of the entire affected area. The excavation revealed evidence for activity in both the Romano-British and Late Saxon periods. Within both of these periods different phases of activity were identified. The majority of the archaeological features excavated were linear, and appear to have formed field boundaries or drainage channels. A post-built structure and an oven were also identified. Substantial amounts of stratified Late Saxon Thetford-type ware was found. Most of the excavated features proved to be contemporary with occupation of the Saxon Shore fort. No connection could be made with the founding of the church of SS. Peter and Paul. ;
