A hoard of 45 silver Roman coins was once ploughed up near the old Norwich Road, along with part of a gold ingot. In 1931 (& again in 1949) Basil Brown (from Ipswich Museum) excavated the remains of a roman villa and found a mosaic floor and coins before residential building started (now modern housing in Tranmere Grove and Chesterfield Drive area).
