A housing development comprising eight new homes could be built on land in Kettlestone in north Norfolk.
Plans have been lodged with North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) to demolish light industrial buildings and build the homes at Church Farm Barn and East Barn.
In documents submitted with the application on the NNDC planning website, it states that the proposed development site is within the historic core of Kettlestone and close to the medieval parish church.
In documents, Norfolk County Council Historic Environment Services said: "Archaeological investigations immediately to the north of the site recovered a wide range of artefacts spanning the prehistoric to post-medieval periods, with a particular emphasis on activity in the Roman and Anglo-Saxon periods."
It states that, if the application is approved, a programme of archaeological work could be carried out on site.
