Camboritum (Lackford) Settlement

Minor Settlement

Findspot of Roman bronze ‘crown’ and ‘head-dress’ found before 1925. Excavation at the findspot revealed a bronze ‘feather’, animal remains, oyster shells, nails, roof tiles and pottery indicating the site of a Romano British settlement dating from the 1st to the 4th century. Late Iron Age pottery was also found. An ancient trackway led north-east to Thetford and Saham Toney, linking the Ridgeway with the Peddlars Way.

Substantial Roman buildings nearby at Icklingham (TL7872), and potteries at West Stow (TL7971).
