A burnt flint mound in a damp woodland clearing on the Norfolk Fen-edge was associated with a number of waterlogged features. A well and a central pit with alder planks on its base produced sherds of Bronze Age Beaker and Food Vessel Urn. A tight sequence of radiocarbon dates was established for a well-stratified sequence of activity which occurred over a short period of time, starting in cal BC 2265–2165 (at 95% confidence) and ending in cal BC 2140–2065 (at 95% confidence). The mound overlay pits and ditches of possible Early Neolithic date.
