Abstract

Between the 20th and 29th October 2003 Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out a field evaluation on Land at Fossett’s Farm, Southend-on-Sea, Essex TQ 893878 on behalf of CgMs Consulting. The evaluation revealed evidence of prehistoric activity in the form of a series of pits, multiple field ditches and an isolated posthole and pit. Pottery from the pits in the south-western corner of the site and from the posthole were dated to between the late Bronze Age and middle Iron Age suggesting the site is on the edge of a prehistoric settlement and agricultural land associated with arable farming
