A new tool for dating archaeological sites in Suffolk is being funded by Historic England, it has been revealed.
A report prepared for yesterday's Suffolk County Council meeting revealed that the new tool would create a 'type-series' for Anglo-Saxon, Medieval and later pottery found in Suffolk and Norfolk.
A 'type-series' is an archaeology resource that is used for dating sites where objects are found, and helps place finds in context in a particular area.
The report said: 'A Suffolk type series is urgently needed if the collections held are to be studied and interpreted effectively.
'The funding will enable the creation of a physical and accessible online type series for the county for use by both commercial and amateur groups.'
