Abstract

An archaeological evaluation was carried out on land at Weaverhead Close, Thaxted, Essex (TL 6144 3137) prior to development for housing. The fieldwork took place between the 6th and 11th of August 2014. A total of seventeen trenches were excavated within the proposed development area. The first phase of activity, located to the north of the site comprised a Late Iron Age / Early Roman field system, aligned north to south. Late Medieval Ridge and Furrow on a north-west to south-east alignment encompassed the eastern half of the site and later Post-Medieval quarrying was present to the west of the site.
