Abstract

An Excavation was carried out at Marks Warren Quarry, centred on grid reference TQ 4861 8937. The excavation area formed phase 10 of the quarry and is the final phase of gravel extraction from the quarry. The excavation uncovered prehistoric remains, with Neolithic activity, late Bronze Age and early Iron Age features. A single, apparently isolated Saxon structure was also uncovered, though this may relate to Saxon activity recorded in previous phases of work at the quarry site. Evidence of WWII activity relating to the Chadwell Heath Battery was also found in the form of demolition material and large scale ground disturbance.
