Abstract

An archaeological evaluation was carried out at Zone P, Beaulieu, Chelmsford. The fieldwork took place between the 4/9/15 and the 18/10/15. A total of forty-five trenches were excavated across two separate fields, within the proposed development area. Evidence of Early Iron Age open settlement was encountered, comprising a fire pit and two small pits. A Middle Iron Age ditch, thought to be part of either a field system or trackway. was seen in the eastern field. Early post-medieval remains comprising several brick-built linear features associated with the deer park were recorded in the eastern field. These are suggested to form part of a deer course. A post-medieval ring ditch was evident in the north-western part of the site along with a field boundary.
