Archaeological Finds on the Deben from East Anglia ONE

By Andrew Peachey

ScottishPower Renewables are constructing a 37km underground cable to connect 102 turbines from the East Anglia ONE Offshore wind farm to a new electricity converter station at Bramford.  As part of the cable laying project, ScottishPower Renewables funded archaeological works across 60 hectares of Suffolk countryside, working closely with Suffolk County Council. Up to 400 archaeologists have been involved in the work since February 2017and so far evidence from many periods has been found. Andrew will focus his talk on new insights into life in and around the River Deben from the digs.

Andrew Peachey (Archaeological Solutions) has been an archaeologist in East Anglia for the past 15 years and is a specialist in prehistoric and Roman pottery.  He has worked on a variety of kiln sites across the region, as well as large-scale rural occupation, cereal processing and trading sites that characterise the development of settlement in river valleys.  The East Anglia ONE projects have produced a vast array of artefacts and opened a new window on life along the valley, spanning early Iron Age roundhouses, Roman barns and settlement, continuing into a Saxon hall and village.  Andy regularly delivers talks across Suffolk and looks forward to opening a new chapter in the narrative of the Deben and placing it into the context of the region.
