Landscape and Archaeology.

Norfolk's Landscape and Archaeology Department, based at Gressenhall near Dereham, has recorded and identified dozens of finds in the parish, and it also has lists of a number of existing houses with Medieval or Post-medieval ancestry.
The finds include flint flakes and axeheads from the Neolithic; a Mesolithic microlith; various Bronze Age and Iron Age artefacts, including an Iceni coin; and a large quantity of Roman and Roman-British goods.
There was a Roman crossroads settlement and a temple at Crownthorpe, and there are traces of several Roman roads in the area.
A number of coin hoards have been found, and at least five moats are listed.
