Abstract

An archaeological evaluation, comprising twelve trenches, was carried out within Zone K, Beaulieu, Chelmsford. The fieldwork took place between the 13/08/16 and the 23/09/16. A undated pit in Trench 559 may be a prehistoric fire pit based on its characteristics. Evidence for early medieval activity was found in the eastern side of the development area, in the form of a ditch which contained a large and unabraded medieval pottery assemblage and other finds indicative of domestic occupation. A further field system, putatively medieval in date was evident, represented by two ditches on a north-west to south-east alignment.
