Ramboll finds Saxon remains at ISG site

Ramboll is overseeing extensive archaeological work that is uncovering Saxon remains at a 1.3ha Ipswich housing site, which will be developed by ISG.

The project for Genesis Housing Association will create a mixed-use development in the Suffolk town.

An extensive archaeological excavation is under way on the site in preparation for the start of construction work.  The excavation is uncovering evidence of middle and late Saxon Ipswich, as well as the ‘lost’ cemetery, and perhaps church, of St Augustine.

Ipswich was one of the earliest, and most important, towns to develop in England during the 7th century, and the work is designed to reveal more evidence of early settlement beside the ford which once crossed the River Orwell.
