Leiston Abbey 2014: Trench 11 Post-Excavation
Trench 11 was positioned in the west of the Earthworks Area on a NW-SE orientation. Measuring 20 x 4 metres, it was located on a diagonal across a defined ‘gap’ in an earthwork bank that appeared to form an entranceway onto an enclosed platform area. Topsoil (11001) was removed by machine, and was then cleaned down by hand to a natural layer into which a series of features were cut. These included a ditch and upcast bank, several intercutting gullies and pits, and a layer of chalky packing material (11022) consolidating the platform entrance way (similar in form to chalk clay layer (10024) in Trench 10).
