Abstract

An archaeological evaluation was conducted in four locations at Kelvedon, Essex on land to the south and north of Church Road and land to the east and west of Thorne Road. Trench 1 to the south of Church Road produced the only archaeological features; a small gully or ditch orientated north to south that contained a single residual Bronze Age or Iron Age struck flint. A second feature contained small fragments of possibly Iron Age pottery but was probably a natural tree throw. The second trench here revealed a possible palaeo-channel. Trenches to the north of Church Road revealed only modern features including a large pit that had been backfilled with demolition material from 19th century buildings along with pottery and bottles dating to the 1930s. No archaeological features or deposits were found to the east of Thorne Road, and only modern features (including a dog burial) were found in the trenches to the west of Thorne Road.
