The Late Iron Age and Roman Settlement at Elms Farm, Heybridge, Essex, Excavations 1993–5: An Interim Report

  • M. Atkinson (a1) and S.J. Preston (a1)

Extract

Two phases of excavation were carried out by Essex County Council Field Archaeology Unit in 1993 and 1994–5; the first was located in the immediate hinterland of a known Late Iron Age and Roman settlement and the second across the eastern half of the settlement itself. The project was necessitated by the imminent development of an area totalling c. 29 hectares (71 acres) by Bovis Homes Ltd of which some 21 hectares were subject to varying degrees of archaeological investigation. While the 1993 phase of fieldwork was developer-funded, the 1994–5 excavation and all subsequent post-excavation work have been financed by English Heritage.
