The site was discovered by ScottishPower Renewables during the construction of East Anglia ONE windfarm​​. It has been excavated by Archaeological Solutions in Bury St Edmunds​, under project manager Vinny Monahan. Monahan has called the site "phenomenal" and experts have suggested that it is of "international significance". He noted that the henge ditch had a "perfectly preserved" walkway, with tookmarks and wood in some places "as good as the day it was placed in the earth".[1]

 

Among the finds was the skull ​of an Auroch​, an extinct, prehistoric ​type of cattle that was radiocarbon dated​ to 4,300 BC. The skull has been cut in a way that suggests it had potentially been fixed to a pole as a totem​ or used as some form of headdress​.[3]

 

Around 400 archaeologists​ have been involved studying the site in the last two years, with anything up to 250 people working on it at any given time.[2]
