Abstract

An archaeological excavation was carried out at Site 6 in Zone F, Beaulieu near Chelmsford. The fieldwork took place between the 2nd and the 27th October 2015. A total area of 0.11ha was excavated in a field within the proposed development area. The earliest feature on site was a circular gully, probably an Early Iron Age enclosure, discovered in the south-western corner of excavation. The main area of excavation was concentrated around a Late Iron Age settlement comprising a north-west to south-east boundary ditch and a roundhouse later replaced by another enclosure. The latest phase of activity on site was a medieval L-shaped enclosure encompassing several small pits and postholes in the centre of excavation, and a crop processing pit and cobbled access to a pond in the south-eastern corner of excavation.
