The Ipswich Archaeological Trust

Welcome to the Ipswich Archaeological Trust (IAT) Website.

We hope to inform and enthuse you about Ipswich and its exciting history. It’s one of the earliest properly English towns. It has crucially important national and international status. The Trust seeks to celebrate these facts.

We want to tell you about archaeological work in the town of Ipswich and similar activity elsewhere.
