The site, off Back Lane in Roughton, near Cromer, is due to be built on for housing.

The three-strong team from Oxford Archaeology East has already built trenches at the site, which has been an open field for many years.

Team member Gosia Kwiatkowska said: 'We will be here this week and part of next week.'
