Telephone Box Museum
A red phone box in Great Yeldham has been repurposed in an inspired way by the community: as a mini museum with a display of finds from our development, Nun’s Green in the village! Expertly excavated by the team at Pre-Construct Archaeology Limited.
Prior to the construction of new homes, PCA undertook an archaeological investigation of the site. Trial trenching revealed artefacts dating from the Mesolithic/Neolithic, Iron Age and Roman periods so a second stage of fieldwork, consisting of three excavation areas, was carried out in the summer of 2021.
The process of examining the results of the excavation is currently underway and will be reported on in due course. The excavation has provided a great opportunity to learn about Great Yeldham’s distant past, in an area that has seen limited detailed archaeological investigation.
