    Dear All,

    Thank you for the brilliantly designed card and also for all the work you are doing for archaeology in this region. You are helping future historians and preserving heritage items and sites for the future. You probably know that the recently uncovered medieval brick kiln in Clare, in the middle of a proposed development, has been saved and will be underneath a green space in the midst of the new houses. It will still be there when those houses are demolished. According to Peter Minter it may well be where the bricks and tiles for Clare Priory were made. Because you raised awareness in this area, hundreds of locals visited the site and pressed for it to be preserved. Well done!

    Happy Xmas to you all,

    Fran & David Reynolds

      Thank you for your Christmas well wishes Fran & David and for your news about the archaeological finds on the land east of the Granary in Clare. We’re very pleased to hear that the new development will incorporate the medieval brick kiln found by Suffolk Archaeological Service earlier in the year. When ACA were excavating in the country park in the summer, a lot of the local people told us about the discovery and that Suffolk Archaeological Service had given members of the public the opportunity to visit the site. It will be interesting to see how the kiln is preserved in the green space proposed.
