THE fruits of a study into the history of an ancient monument have been displayed for the first time.
They are the findings of an archaeological study carried out at Court Knoll, Nayland, near Sudbury.
The display – billed as an "archaeological celebration" – followed months of dedicated research by local people. Scores of residents helped to examine the site, which was once the home of a medieval manor.
Experts were also drafted in to scan the area with hi-tech equipment capable of X-raying land.
The finds displayed included plaster casts of items found by villagers. A piece of artwork commissioned to celebrate the study was also unveiled.
The study has been funded by a Local Heritage Initiative grant given to Nayland with Wissington Conservation Society. The society worked with the Dedham Vale and Stour Valley Countryside Project to draw up the bid.
