Abstract

This paper summarises the outcomes of the 143 test pit excavations in 2018 in a total of twelve rural communities (Fig. 1) in the final year of the long-running programme carrying out standardised test pit excavations within more than 70
inhabited rural settlements of likely medieval date in order to illuminate their long-term development. In 2018, six of the excavated settlements (Althorne and Thundersley in Essex; Great Gidding in Cambridgeshire; and Bunwell, Fulmodeston and Hilgay in Norfolk) were new additions to the programme, while excavation in the other six settlements (Histon/Impington in Cambridgeshire; Foxearth and Wendens Ambo in Essex; Brundall in Norfolk; Blythburgh and Rickinghall with Botesdale in Suffolk) extended work previously reported in this journal.
The outcomes of the test pit excavations in 2018 are summarised alphabetically by county and
parish name.
