Ipswich has a rich archaeological heritage and is of international importance because of its status as one of only four Middle Saxon ‘emporia' or ‘wic' sites in England. The others are London, Southampton and York. These sites displayed urban characteristics in the AD 700s and were trading with continental Europe.
Working with Dr Abby Antrobus and the Suffolk County Council Archaeological Service, Dr Hannah Cutler will be working on the project for the next ten months. Our thanks to her for the photographs (© Suffolk County Council Archaeology Service).
