Abstract

An Evaluation was carried out at Beaulieu Park, Chelmsford, Grid ref TL 73081 10779, the fieldwork took place from the 26/9/11 to 7/10/11.
A total of thirty seven trenches were excavated across four separate fields within the proposed development area. The evaluation showed a concentration of archaeological remains in the eastern part of the study area. These remains mainly suggested Late Iron Age industrial activity and early Roman settlement. Metal detecting of the plough soil revealed several early Roman coins and fragments of early Roman brooches.
