Abstract

Between 20th January 2016 and 26th February 2016 Oxford Archaeology East carried out an evaluation and excavation at land adjacent to Channels Golf Club, Belstead Lane, Little Waltham, Essex (TL 7229 1090). Eight evaluation trenches were excavated and on the basis of the results from these three areas were opened. Evidence of prehistoric activity was recorded in the form of two Late Bronze Age pits and several Iron Age ditches in the northern part of the site. It is likely that the latter of these are the remains of field boundaries. The results from the southern part of the site demonstrated that activity continued into the Early Roman period with a trackway and ditch being uncovered. Early Roman pits were also found in this part of the site. During the medieval period an enclosure system was established in the northern part of the site fronting onto the lane to the east.
