Two archaeological excavations were carried out within Phase 1 at Beaulieu, Chelmsford. (TL 7185 1031) ahead of infrastructure works. The fieldwork took place between the 16th and 27th of September 2013.
The excavation consisted of two separate areas totalling 1266m² and 656m² in area. These excavations were targeted on Iron Age remains recorded during previous evaluation works (OA East Report No. 1473).
The northern area (Site 5) revealed part of a Middle Iron Age settlement, including a roundhouse together with associated discrete features and occupation debris. The settlement lay within an enclosure.
To the south, in Area A1, two field boundaries were recorded, one of which dated to the Late Iron Age and the other to the medieval period.
