Abstract

An archaeological excavation was carried out within land parcel CZ6 (Area Q1), Beaulieu, Chelmsford (TL 7344 1075). The fieldwork took place between the 28/9/15 and the 02/10/15. An area 542 sq m was opened targeting a Late Iron Age cremation encountered during the trial trench evaluation of CZ6. Four Late Iron Age cremations and two undated pits were found. The four cremations comprised individuals each interred within a pottery vessel and buried in a pit. All the remains were severely truncated by modern ploughing.
